Miri – Interhill Group and Pullman Miri Waterfront officiated and handover their Green Garden House Project to the Miri Methodist Children’s Home (MMCH), in which it was build 2 months ago here at the children’s home itself.
The Green Garden was a joint CSR effort between Interhill Group and Pullman Miri Waterfront in taking up the proposal by the children’s home to build a garden house in their compound area.
The proposal was made during a gathering on a previous event held for the children’s home, which was the Christmas Wish Tree for MMCH back in December 2016.
It was the children’s wish to have a vegetable garden house of their own, whereby they can plant and harvest the vegetables for their own daily consumptions.
Present during the officiating and handover ceremony were Albert Hu, Group Executive Director of Interhill Group, Eric Tan, Chief Operating Officer of Interhill Group (Hospitality Division), Jayson Chong, Hotel Manager of Pullman Miri Waterfront, Lau Kung Mei, Director of MMCH, Vivian Lo, Superintendent of MMCH, as well as the staff from Interhill Group, Pullman Miri Waterfront and MMCH.
Officiating was done by Albert and Eric, which later was followed by a symbolic handover of the garden by Albert, Eric and Jayson to the Director of MMCH where the vegetables were handed over to be planted into the existing vegetable plots in the garden house.
Eric representing Interhill Group and Pullman Miri Waterfront commenting on this CSR joint effort, said “We are all honored to be part of this initiative. It is a very meaningful initiative showing the children the results of the harvest and where it all started from day 1 when we started to plant the seeds. ”
He also added, “With a strong foundation showered with care and effort, a healthy grown vegetable is the end result. This should also be linked to our stages in life when we were first arrive in this world.”
The construction of the garden house started in the early March, with a total of 30 staffs from both Interhill Group and Pullman Miri Waterfront.
The Green Garden House with the size of 20ft x 20ft comes with 3 vegetable plots containing different types of vegetables as requested by the children’s home, respectively.
Those vegetables are Bak Choy, Kai Choy and Choy Sum where the seeds where pre-planted into the plots around one month ago.
Interhill Group and Pullman Miri Waterfront hope that more individuals, companies and associations will step up to offer similar effort in showing support for the children’s home towards creating a caring and loving community.
