COMMUNITY AND SOCIAL IMPACT
Shangri-La remains committed to operating in an economically, socially and environmentally responsible manner. Under the umbrella of sustainability, Shangri-La’s social responsibility programme consists of the two elements of “EMBRACE” and “SANCTUARY.”
Embrace focuses on Shangri-La’s Care for People Project, which aims to promote the highest level of education and health support in underprivileged communities. In sanctuary, the programme concentrates on Shangri-La’s Care for Nature Project, which promotes the conservation and restoration of biodiversity.

Make-A-Wish Come True with Shangri-La
Family has always been at the heart of Shangri-La and we are honoured to be supporting Make-A-Wish International with the inspiring work they do for families around the world.
A wish has the ability to transform the lives of children and their families during some of the most difficult times, giving a sense of hope and escapism when needed most. Shangri-La invites guests to make a difference by supporting this important cause to help children experience the power of imagination and the strength that comes from it.
Shangri-La* is proudly supporting Make-A-Wish International with bespoke stays and experiences to raise vital funds for the foundation.
To book your Make-A-Wish Come True please visit our hotel websites directly via their Offers pages. Alternatively, to make a donation please visit our dedicated fund raising page via worldwish.org/shangri-la/
Together, we hope to make every child’s wish come true.

Hatay Friendship City
The devastating earthquakes in Turkey impacted the lives of people living in at least 11 provinces across the country. To offer some respite, Shangri-La Group in partnership with the Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency in Turkey (AFAD), has provided 300 furnished container homes to the residents of Hatay.
Located near Mustafa Kemal University, the container city has been named ‘Dostluk Kenti’ meaning "Friendship City" and will house up to 1200 displaced Hatay residents. The temporary homes are insulated, resistant to harsh weather conditions and have been fitted with the plumbing, electricity bathroom equipment and living furnishings of an everyday home.
Friendship City was made possible through donations by Shangri-La employees worldwide, which were matched by the Group. With Asian hospitality and heartfelt care at the core of our brand, we hope this contribution offers the people of Hatay some relief and stability during this challenging time.
