Sharing Goodwill Where it is Needed Most

Scenic Hotel Tonga

20 December 2018

Nearly a year after the devastating cyclone Gita hit Tonga, Scenic Hotel Tonga guests and staff continue to support communities who are still in need. The effort comes from what General Manager, Katie Silcock, describes as “Overwhelming support from our guests, especially New Zealanders who arrive at the hotel with boxes of books, toys, clothing and goods.” 

Whilst the repair and rebuild has been comprehensive since Gita hit, there are still some communities in need and to help these people, Scenic Hotel Tonga engages with staff to understand where these donations are best disbursed. 

If a picture paints a thousand words, this photo shows Scenic Hotel Tonga Assistant Manager, Zeyn Buksh, together with Operations Manager, Patrick Siu, sharing guest donated goods with Grandfather Liu along with four of his six grandchildren. Liu’s family of ten was one of three families in the Malapo Village to receive donations of clothing, toiletries, clothing, books, blankets, hats and toys, which had been given to the hotel by generous and caring guests. 

Katie urges visitors to continue donating either through the hotel or with notice, the hotel can facilitate a village visit for those visitors wishing to donate directly to families in need.  

This initiative is one of many that Scenic Hotel Tonga and the Scenic Hotel Group as a whole, are involved in to support the people and places in which they operate.
