Dusit Thani Manila partners with Habitat for Humanity in providing shelter to families affected by Typhoon Yolanda through the “Give a Gift of Home” program. The hotel provides an avenue for the guests to support Habitat for Humanity’s cause by offering ways to donate, such as the option for guests to round-off their bill upon check out or give a higher amount through the online fundraising page:
The Habitat for Humanity program aims to help the families by repairing 30,000 damaged houses through distribution of shelter repair kits.
A ceremonial lighting of the “First Light,” a work of art by Filipino Furniture Designer Kenneth Cobonpue was held to signify and seal the partnership of Dusit Thani Manila and Habitat for Humanity.
The artwork is on exhibit at the hotel’s lobby until February 2014.
