With great integrity of a grand “Spirit to Serve” motto, Marriott has always believed in not only taking care of its associates, but the world around them. This year Marriott Thailand has decided to be a keen supporter for SOS Children’s Villages Thailand.
SOS Children’s Villages Thailand or SOS Children Foundation (registered Thai name) is an international non-governmental social development organisation founded in November 1971 and a member of SOS Children’s Villages International that is active in 132 countries. Similar in care of the international hotel chain, SOS Children’s Villages Thailand helps Thai children who have lost the care and protection of their parents by providing them a loving home and family once again. At SOS Children’s Village they grow up in the most natural way possible and develop their individual skills, interests and talents.
There are over 400 integrated youths and adults from SOS Children’s Villages Thailand and 600 children are under the care of 5 SOS Children’s Villages: Bangpoo Samutprakarn, Hatyai Songkla, Nongkhai, Chiang Rai and Phuket.
Marriott Thailand is now delighted to be collecting THB 30 from per room night stay of all our Marriott hotels and resorts in Thailand whereas the JW Phuket Resort & Spa and Renaissance Phuket Resort & Spa are giving THB 10 all starting from May 2011. With each night stay with any Marriott hotels and resorts in Thailand you can carry along a bit of goodwill in helping to extend the work with equal rights of education, training, food, clothes, heath care for children and ensure that they enjoy these basic rights with every aim to develop into independent and responsible citizens of society.
Marriott Thailand would like to assist SOS Children’s Villages Thailand to make public these problems that children face and promote the welfare of children globally. In parallel to SOS Children’s Village ideals, we would also want to ‘encourage children to actively take part in the decision-making processes that affect their lives and, if possible, to actually represent themselves.’
