To give back and spread cheer during the festive season, Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta gifted a holiday cake to the Griya Asih Foundation, an orphanage that cares for children from underprivileged backgrounds. Dating back to the 1990s, Ms. Pandoyo started the orphanage as a small refuge for children to seek shelter during a massive flood on February 10, 1996. The center grew from a small home for a few foster children to a large orphanage that cares for 50 to 60 children.
With the help of 10 to 12 caregivers, Ms. Pandoyo welcomes and cares for children ages five to 18, or until they are able to find sustaining employment. The care is based on a family atmosphere, in which each child receives equal treatment and education, and is raised with compassion.
We wish Ms. Pandoyo, the children and caregivers at Griya Asih Foundation, and our colleagues at Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta a warm and loving holiday season!
