Philea Resort and Spa, Melaka hosts a fun Christmas party for 48 special children and young adults of Wings Melaka.
Held at the ballroom on 22 December 2015, the dinner party for 48 children and young adults from Wings Melaka was hosted as part of the resort’s corporate social responsibility commitment to address the needs of the community especially the underprivileged. With the generous support from the public, resort guests and resort associates, all the children went home with Christmas presents, a full tummy and lots of Christmas cheer to last all.
Joining in the fun with the children and young adults were the resort general manager Lim Beng Weh and head of departments.
This community initiative also known as Christmas Wish Tree campaign launched on 1st December where 48 children and young adults, aged three to 23, had earlier written down their wish gift which were then hung on a Christmas tree at the lobby of Philea Resort and Spa, Melaka. Public, resort guests and resort associates made the children’s wishes come true by selecting a wish card and bought the gift they wished for ranging from educational toys and bicycles to schooling material and new outfits. The excitement lit up the air as the children couldn’t wait any longer to open their presents and checking out what each other received.
“Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year and we would like to share this joy with the people in our community. This is the second year that Philea undertaken the Christmas Wish Tree charity campaign and we hope to see the joy on the faces of the children when their wishes transform into reality. And we hope to continue this for many years to come,” said Lim Beng Weh, the resort general manager.
Before the end of the session, the resort associates serenaded the children and young adults with fun dance and Santa Claus made appearance for candy giveaway for kids.
