“Care to Community” is a Starwood initiative that stresses giving back on a local level to those in need.

This Destawan Orphanage is non-profit facility established in 2009 to care for orphaned, abandoned and impoverished children in North Bali. The center currently accommodates 40 youngsters providing for the children’s welfare and education.

Sally Fadjrina, Director of Sales, together with her Westin team were welcomed to the orphanage by its chairman, Ketut Sutrisna. The visit included a full tour as well as sessions of fun games with the children. The visitors then presented boxes of donated goods containing basic necessities to help meet the daily needs of the orphanage.

“It is always a rewarding experience that we can share a little bit joy with children who are less fortunate under our Care to Community program. Nothing compares to seeing a small face light up with pleasure upon receiving an inexpensive gift such as a notebook for school or a new toothbrush. We are looking forward to supporting the children of the Destawan Orphanage in many unique way over the coming year,” commented Bipan Kapur, General Manager of The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali.
