at Park Hyatt Goa

In support of Hyatt Thrive, Hyatt’s global corporate responsibility platform, the associates of Park Hyatt Goa engaged in a series of meaningful charitable activities with local communities to make a difference in their lives. This is a part of Hyatt’s Global Month of Community Service, which is a brand-wide effort that encourages Hyatt associates to improve the many communities around the world that they call home.

The 2015 Global Month of Giving started a week earlier at Park Hyatt Goa as we organized a much needed free Medical Camp for the women from the neighborhood villagein association with NusiWockhardt Hospital and Indian Red Cross Society(March being the Women’s Day month). The specialist doctors at the camp included a Breast Cancer specialist who conducted an awareness session, an Orthopaedic Surgeon and Gynecologistalong with a General Physician. The camp was attended by 50 women who went back home more aware and careful about their health.

Give-As-Much-As–You-Can COLLECTION DRIVE

“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.” –as Mother Teresa had rightly said.Our associates came forward to organize a collection drive at the hotel where they wanted to collect books, clothes, toys, linen and other household items that they felt were of more use to the less fortunate ones. This was an embodiment of the CARE that is instilled in each one of us in the Hyatt family and our associates went the extra mile to collect as much as we could. The collection drive started on April 8th will conclude on 1st May 2015 when we will physically segregate the collected items according to age and type. The clothes will be laundered and packed ready to be handed over to the most deserving shelter , the books segregated and handed over to the Ashraya Home by El-Sheddai where we are making a small reading corner for the kids and women and the other items like toys and linen will be distributed similarly.
