Facing Layoff? Consider Painting Houses in Bali

Three Cathay Pacific Executives on Unpaid Leave Travel to Bali to Paint a Local Orphanage.


(6/6/2009)

In difficult economic times, such as these, many are compelled to cut back, curtail and economize.

Forced to take unpaid leave by their companies, some would choose to sit home wallowing in self-pity, angry at the world and their "difficult" circumstances. Yet others in the same circumstance will decide to take their temporary suspension in stride, reflecting on the good fortune of having a job to return to determining how best to utilize the coming work break.

Accentuating the positive in this manner is exactly what three Cathay Pacific Airways executives did, when in May 2009, they were put on temporary unpaid leave as an airline cost-saving measure. Dennis Owen the U.S. Marketing Manager, together with Shirley Liu and Leslie Lu from the airline's headquarters in Hong Kong, used their own funds and purchased firm-space employee passes on Cathay Pacific so they could fly to Bali to spend a week painting a local orphanage.

Checking into a local hotel and purchasing paint and brushes from a local hardware store, the three energetic Cathay Pacific
managers spent a week painting the entire Mercy Orphanage in Denpasar Bali.

Established in 2001 by Mr. and Mrs. Paulus Wiranto to care for abandoned and orphaned children, Mercy Orphanage now has 9 homes throughout Indonesia caring for some 180 children. Responding when and where the need is often the greatest, Mercy Orphanages have been established facilities in eastern Indonesia to care for war refuges from East Timor and in Aceh for tsunami victims.

For more information on the work of Mr. and Mrs. Wiranto and their countless co-carers visit [Mercy Indonesia]

Shown on balidiscovery.com are pictures taken during the recent paint-up, fix-up visit to the Mercy Orphanage where the three airline executives posed with the children, all sporting new Cathay Pacific polo shirts. Also shown in a separate photograph to right) are Shirly Lui, Leslie Lu and Dennis Owen.
