U Make A Difference
Supporting Chiang Mai orphanages and other local communities through our brand wide charity contribution
Our locations and warm, uncomplicated service encourage guests to step into the local environment and experience its culture and heritage at their own pace to create a memorable, unique experience.
The "U Make a Difference" programme is carried out at all our U Hotels & Resorts. It is a community relations activity to support organizations that serve a broad segment of the local community. We invite our guests to be part of this program too, because U can make a difference!
As our guests you can be a part of this programme. U Chiang Mai will contribute USD1 for every night a guest stays at our hotel. The contributions will be presented to the local charities twice a year. As part of the "U Make a Difference" programme, we will arrange weekly scheduled visits to the charity so guests can see firsthand the improvements that their contributions are making to the community.
Which charity we are supporting?
We have chosen 3 organizations to support.
Baan Kingkaew Orphanage, the first charitable foundation in Chiang Mai province. The foundation dedicates itself to the care of needy children by an orphanage for children aged from birth to 5 years, providing scholarships for the education through high school for older children as well as creating activities to keep the children away from drugs.
We realize the vital role that Baan Kingkaew Orphanage plays in the Chiang Mai's community, and hope that this donation will help the organisation reach its goal. Payments of contributions will be donated to Baan Kingkaew Orphanage twice a year.
Wild Flower Home, provides safe shelter, education, health and other services to young single mothers who are either pregnant or have young children. We offer emotional and educational support to help them move from crisis and poverty to steady jobs or continuing education after leaving Wildflower Home. Wildflower Home seeks to ensure each mother and child is in a healthy, supportive community during and subsequent to leaving our shelter.
The Foundation for the Welfare of the Mentally Retarded of Thailand Under the Royal Patronage of Her Majesty the Queen, provide children with mental retardation and their families with 4 requisites and food supplementary to prevent malnutrition which is a major cause of mental retardation. Children will be able to support themselves which will immensely ease the burden of their parents, guardians and society. A study was conducted on society development for sustaining support for the mentally retarded as the first stage assistance.
