[ClickPress, Tue Nov 19 2013] On the occasion on 20th Anniversary, the senior leadership team of InterContinental Bali Resort presented a USD 20,000 cheque to support the initiatives of Bali Life Foundation. The owning companies of the resort, Media Group and China Sonangol further matched this donation by adding another USD 20,000 to the donation, thereby summing the total to USD 40,000.

InterContinental Bali Resort has been associated with the Bali Life Foundation over the last few years and has been actively involved in their community activities.

“Our vision is to provide hope, dignity, and purpose to children who have been orphaned, abandoned, or rejected. By supporting our work you have helped us to fulfil this vision in the most tangible way. You have also contributed towards establishing a home for them, in which they shall continue to thrive, heal, and grow towards their respective destinies. The work of Bali Life is only made possible by the generosity, support, and partnership of groups of people such as InterContinental Bali Resort, Media Group and China Senangol. We are humbled by your involvement in Bali Life Foundation.” commented Mr Piter Panjaitan, Director, Bali Life Foundation

“Since twenty years, InterContinental Bali Resort has contributed significantly to the hospitality industry and the local community in Bali. We have a strong Corporate Social Responsibility program in place. This entails carrying our initiatives that support the local community and taking eco-friendly measures to reduce its overall impact on the surrounding environment. We make a difference in the lives of those that we touch every day.” comments Mr. Michel Chertouh, General Manager of InterContinental Bali Resort.

Over 400 dignitaries, owning company representatives, travel partners and media personalities gathered together to commemorate this milestone in Bali’s Hospitality Industry.
