(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Shangri-La's Barr al Jissah Resort & Spa has recently organised a water distribution' campaign driven by its corporate social responsibility committee. 

Eighty three resort employees volunteered to participate in the water distribution activity to which they were divided into five teams, representing five different departments of the resort.

These teams were then assigned to distribute water bottles to the labourers, construction workers and gardeners working outside during the day around Muscat. The CSR initiative “ inspired by i-Care initiative Oman; a nonprofit organisation “ proved to be a success with a total of 1,584 water bottles distributed in the districts of Muttrah, Wadi Kabir, Darsait, Ruwi, Hamriya, Al Khuwayr, Ghubra, Ghala and Al Ansab.

The volunteers handed out the water bottles personally to individuals working under the direct sunlight and heat of Muscat which, through this thoughtful gesture, led many workers to interact with the resort's volunteers. Shangri-La's Barr al Jissah Resort and Spa is committed to its annual CR programme led by the dedicated committee and will continue to initiate similar activities within Muscat and Oman, as well as participating in various international and local activities throughout its CSR calendar.

Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts remains committed to operating in an economically, socially and environmentally responsible manner while balancing the interests of diverse stakeholders. In striving to be a leader in corporate citizenship and sustainable development, a corporate- level CSR Committee drives the company's initiatives in the strategic areas of stakeholder relations, environment, health and safety, supply chain and employees.

Under the umbrella of sustainability, Shangri-La's social responsibility programme consists of the two elements of embrace' and sanctuary'. Embrace focuses on Shangri-La's Caring People Project, which aims to promote the highest level of education and health support in underprivileged communities. In sanctuary, the programme concentrates on Shangri-La's Care for Nature Project, which promotes the conservation and restoration of biodiver
