SINGAPORE - While many hotels are experiencing woeful occupancy rates and cost cutting measures, one hotel has reached out to encourage Singapore's healthcare workers who are on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mandarin Oriental Singapore recently embarked on a Doing More CSR initiative for healthcare heroes by delivering 2,000 packs of cookies which were packed by the hotels in-house pastry chefs.

These were delivered to the healthcare professionals at Singapore General Hospital.

"To extend our heartfelt appreciation towards healthcare heroes battling the COVID-19 outbreak, Mandarin Oriental, Singapore brought a treat of joy, in form of freshly baked cookies to the Singapore General Hospital.

"This was our way of expressing our gratitude for their steadfast commitment and unwavering care for our community during this time of need," says Mr Christian A Hassing, area VP and GM, Mandarin Oriental, Singapore.

The 527-room hotel has, among its other MICE facilities, three boardrooms, a 599-sqm ballroom and an al fresco lounge, BAY@5, extensive AV and projection equipment and video-conferencing facilities, and techno butlers on hand to solve last minute glitches.
