CapitaLand Investment Limited’s wholly owned lodging business unit, The Ascott Limited (Ascott), celebrated the month of Ramadan through its Ascott Berbagi programme. More than 280 staff from Ascott’s network of 60 lodging properties across 15 cities in Indonesia including Jakarta, Bandung, Yogyakarta, Surabaya, Semarang, Bali, Batam, and other cities distributed takjil boxes containing food and drinks to families living in low-income urban areas, orphanages, and becak communities, providing meals for iftar at the end of the day.
Mr Philip Lim, Ascott’s Country General Manager for Indonesia, said, “As a responsible lodging company, Ascott has been giving back to the community over the 25 years since we started operations in Indonesia. Ascott Berbagi is a signature corporate social responsibility activity we conduct every year during Ramadan.”
Patrick Vaysse, Ascott’s Chief Operating Officer for Hotels, Indonesia, said, “Staff volunteerism is an integral part of our culture to build a caring and inclusive community. Ascott has stepped up our efforts to rally-out staff to reach out to more families through Ascott Berbagi this year. We also leveraged our resources by having our in-house restaurants prepare the takjil for the community and we hope that this will bring them joy during this holy month of Ramadan.”
