From the initial effort, 127 families will benefit from the relief packs prepared by Megaworld Hotels and Resorts.

Megaworld Hotels and Resorts, with all its 11 properties and 4,500 rooms in the Philippines, is on a mission called “Rebuild Recover Visayas Project,” which aims to raise funds for areas in Mactan, Cebu devastated by Typhoon Odette.

When you stay in Belmont Hotel Manila, Savoy Hotel Manila, Kingsford Hotel Manila, Hotel Lucky Chinatown, Twin Lakes Hotel, Eastwood Richmonde Hotel, Richmonde Hotel Ortigas, Richmonde Hotel Iloilo, Belmont Hotel Boracay, Savoy Hotel Boracay, or Savoy Hotel Mactan Newtown, a portion of revenues from your nightly stays within the month of January 2022 will automatically be donated to the cause. Dining guests also have the option to donate by informing the restaurant’s staff before billing out.

Whether you’re traveling for business or leisure, staying in properties like Richmonde Hotel Ortigas or any of Megaworld Hotels and Resorts’ locations will be used to rebuild schools in Mactan, Cebu.

Cleofe Albiso, managing director and a local of Cebu City herself, shares: “It saddens us that we ended 2021 with a strong Typhoon Odette that devastated many parts of the Visayas and Mindanao, stripping homes and businesses of its necessities. What’s inspiring though is that despite the personal battles we are faced with and amid the pandemic, people’s willingness to help and extend assistance is just as strong.”

“We did an initial campaign among our associates to help our other employees affected by the typhoon and the response was overwhelming,” Albiso adds.

When you stay in any of Megaworld Hotels and Resorts (MHR) properties such as the ones in the pristine beaches of Newcoast Boracay, a portion of revenues from your stay directly goes to MHR’s Rebuild Recover Visayas Project to help schools in Mactan, Cebu devastated by Typhoon Odette.

Hotel property employees have already gathered P200,000 worth of donations through relief packs and cash donations. A total of 127 families will be receiving tote bags containing essentials like water, canned and dry goods, as well as clothing, among other items.

“Our team through Savoy Hotel Mactan Newtown is currently surveying possible schools within Mactan in dire need of this assistance,” says Albiso.
