CHARITY PROJECTS

The Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation was set up in 2005, in the far north of Thailand. The foundation started out by setting up an elephant camp, to rescue Thailand’s captive street elephants. As the foundation has grown, it’s started working with partners on several other projects – including research into elephant behavior and wild elephant conservation.

Mai Khao Marine Turtle Foundation helps raise funds and awareness for the plight of the critically endangered giant leatherback turtles as well as other turtle species that nest in the Andaman.

The Princess Sirindhorn Craniofacial Centre provides treatment, primarily to children, who are affected by facial disfigurements. It’s located in the Chulalongkorn Hospital in Bangkok.

JW Marriott Phuket ‘Spirit to Serve’.

The basic needs are apparent and JW Marriott supports them to improve their overall well-being. By working with JW Marriott Phuket Resort and Spa to produce welcome gifts for their guests, it provides vital income opportunity for the local villagers.
