#DorsettCares – Dorsett Kuala Lumpur’s Ramadan CSR with Pertubuhan Kebajikan Al-Firdausi in Collaboration with KL Hop-On Hop-Off  

Corporate Social Responsibility is an essential constituent of Dorsett’s operating philosophy. #DorsettCares – Being part of Dorsett Hospitality International’s brand initiatives, the group has always positively impacted the underprivileged communities allowing the team’s contribution to let them “Stay Vibrant” for life.

On 10th May 2019, Dorsett Kuala Lumpur in collaboration with KL Hop-On Hop-Off, the only open top double decker bus in Kuala Lumpur that allows you to experience a sightseeing city tour; hosted 30 children and 5 caretakers from the orphanage of Pertubuhan Kebajikan Al-Firdausi for a free city tour ride and a scrumptious “Masakan Bonda Kembali” Ramadan Buffet at Checkers Café of the hotel.

5 representatives of Dorsett Kuala Lumpur volunteered to join KL Hop-On Hop-Off to pick up the children, all aged between 5 – 17 years old. As soon as the bus arrived at the location, the children under the supervision of the caretakers were extremely excited but obediently queued up to hop on the bus. The associates of the hotel and representatives of KL Hop-On Hop-Off greeted the children and ushered them up the bus before the tour began. The bus toured around the city passing by the twin towers and KL Tower before headed back to the hotel.

As soon as they returned to the hotel, the orphans and caretakers of Pertubuhan Kebajikan Al-Firdausi were welcomed by Datin Jasmine Abdullah Heng, Vice Chairman of Dorsett Hospitality International and Ms. Adele Ang, General Manager of Dorsett Kuala Lumpur. The hotel associates then led the children into one of the function rooms for a movie session and did their prayers in the Surau before breaking fast. By 7pm, everyone was gathered at the hotel’s all-day-dining Checkers Café, all ready to Buka Puasa together. Tn Syed Azhar Tn Syed Nadzi, CEO of KL Hop-On Hop-Off joined and interacted with the children along with Datin Jasmine and Ms. Adele. While everyone enjoyed the wide array of traditional and unique Ramadan dishes, Ezri, Assistant Director of Sales along with his band – Monocort serenaded the crowd with some nostalgic Ramadan tunes. The atmosphere was indeed warm and cosy as some teenage orphans sang along. After a fabulous feast of “Masakan Bonda Kembali”, the Buka Puasa dinner ended with Datin Jasmine and Ms. Adele presenting Raya packets and Dorsett Kids Bag with colouring kits as giveaways to each of the adorable children. The caretakers were extremely grateful and in return honoured Dorsett Kuala Lumpur an Appreciation Certificate.
