Dorsett Hospitality International Aid for Flood Victims


An email just popped up in my inbox a couple of days back, one of the many humanitarian efforts by good hearted folks and corporations in light of the flood tragedy that befell our country recently. In responding to the call of ‘Humanitarian Aid for Flood Victims’ by Kuala Lumpur City Hall over the flood that has displaced more than 250,000 people in several states within the Peninsular Malaysia,

Datuk Hj. Mhd. Amin Nordin bin Abd. Aziz in a handing-over ceremony recently.

A collective effort taken by six hotels under the hospitality group in Malaysia, Dorsett Grand Subang, Dorsett Grand Labuan, Dorsett Regency Kuala Lumpur, Silka Maytower Kuala Lumpur, Silka Cheras Kuala Lumpur and Silka Johor Bahru have successfully raised the said amount via generous contributions of its associates and management teams.
