Mövenpick Hotel Colombo is helping local people in need as part of the 2018 ‘Kilo of Kindness’ global charity campaign.

Launched by Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts in 2015, the highly-successful initiative, which honours the United Nations International Day of Charity on 5 September, calls on guests to donate at least one kilo of food, clothing and educational supplies to disadvantaged communities around the world, with a focus on underprivileged youngsters.

Mövenpick Hotel Colombo is one of 30+ hotels across Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East supporting the campaign, which runs from 1-15 September.

Guests and visitors are invited to drop off at least one kilo of supplies at the hotel lobby during that period, which will then be distributed to a selected number of under priviledged families in the Galenbindunuwewa village- a rural village in the Anuradhapura district.

Last year, 8,50 kilos of supplies were donated by guests of participating hotels – a figure Mövenpick hopes to surpass with its 2018 campaign. While each guest is encouraged to donate at least one ‘Kilo of Kindness’, all contributions will be gratefully received.

High-priority items include books, notebooks and stationery such as pens, pencils, rulers and erasers; canned foods such as tuna, soup, fruit, vegetables and concentrated milk; dry foods like rice, beans, oats, pasta, cereals, flour, powdered milk, baby formula, tea and coffee; and clothing for adults and children.
