SOS Children’s Village Phuket was established in 2004 in the aftermath of the tsunami. Since then, the village has helped to raise and take care of children whom lost their parents, as well as taking in new orphans, to provide a caring and supportive family environment.

“The children are very cheerful. It’s good to see that our donations and support can bring a smile to them” said one of the team members.

“A Kilo of Kindness” is part of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ global sustainability program Shine, which aims to give back to the communities where the company operates. Shine focuses on three pillars – Environment, Employer and Social Sustainability – with Education forming the common thread as a key focus.
