Keppel Land believes that in doing well, it should also do good. In line with this, Keppel Land China organised corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities over the months of September and October 2016.
On 9 October 2016, 11 volunteers from Keppel Land China’s Tianjin office visited the elderly residents of Han Gu Social Welfare House in celebration of the Chongyang Festival, a popular Chinese custom during which mainly elderly members of society get together in celebration of longevity.
Beneficiaries of the Han Gu Welfare House mostly comprise underprivileged senior citizens who, due to unfortunate circumstances, are unable to support themselves. Keppel Land China’s Tianjin office has been supporting the home since last year, and staff have made regular visits to bring cheer to the beneficiaries.
Over in Spring City Golf & Lake Resort (Spring City) in Kunming, the CSR team, together with members from its trade union, visited the Caodian Elderly Home to paint smiles on the faces of the elderly during their annual Mid-Autumn Festival visit in September 2016. For the past two years, Spring City has donated a total of over RMB 10,000 in cash and kind to the home.
Caodian Elderly Home was established in 1992 and is operated by the Kunming local government. The home currently houses 14 beneficiaries aged between 52 and 87.
