An Act Of Hospitality To The Needy

In conjunction with World Sight Day 2019, Hilton Kuala Lumpur donated RM9,000 to the Malaysian Foundation for the Blind (MFB) as an act of hospitality towards the global awareness on blindness and vision impairment. This is an extension of Hilton’s centennial celebrations in Southeast Asia this year.

For 100 years, Hilton has seen a world that can be made better through genuine hospitality. Hilton Kuala Lumpur’s efforts are a part of its weeklong celebration, recognising the company’s year-round commitment to serving and enriching the communities where team members live, work, and travel.

A reflection of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) commitment to the community, the generous contribution was a concerted effort between the 5-star hotel and its team members. The funds garnered resulted in the purchase of 200 white walking canes for the visually impaired.

“Over the last century, being the most hospitable company in the world has been a core focus for us here at Hilton, and it is this part of our DNA that has inspired us to perform these ‘Acts of Hospitality’ throughout our communities during our milestone centennial year. Malaysia represents a significant part of our presence in Southeast Asia and as a company of our scale and heritage, we have a responsibility to do our part for the communities we operate in,” said Mr. Jamie Mead, Regional General Manager, Malaysia, Philippines and Vietnam, Hilton.

MFB, a national nonprofit foundation, is a local champion whose mission lies in making life better for blind and partially sighted people in Malaysia, as well raising awareness, and creating skills and vocational training programs.
