Want to help the kids in Bali?

With significant numbers of Australians returning to Bali, Accor's Bali hotels have launched a programme to assist Bali's underprivileged children in a most practical way.

Spearheaded by Accor's Regional Manager in Bali, Michel Vivier – and co-ordinated by the General Managers at each hotel – the campaign will encourage visitors to Bali to make small donations of clean, good quality clothes as well as toys, school materials, art materials and non-perishable foodstuffs for children aged 3-18, which will then be distributed to orphanages and needy children.

"The thought behind the campaign is for tourists to bring full suitcases of surplus gifts, unload them and either stock up with shopping in Bali – which the island is famous for" said Michel Vivier. "It really has a double benefit because the donations will be greatly welcomed and purchasing goods at local stores, will help revive the local economy".
