Hyderabad: Hotel Mercure Hyderabad KCP organised ‘Solidarity Week’, an initiative to support economically backward sections of the society to help them grow. This year, as part of the ‘Solidarity Week’, the hotel staff visited Cherish Foundation, an NGO working towards the development and rehabilitation of orphan kids, and spent an evening with them. The hotel staff donated essential items and entertained the kids by playing games with them like musical chairs, board games, etc to make them feel special. ‘Solidarity Week,’ initiated by AccorHotels, celebrates unity and generosity around the world. AccorHotels has involved over 20,000 of its employees in more than 500 hotels across 45 countries. It started the Solidarity Week initiative in 2008.
Charity as an integral part
