Supporting Autistic Children
Ever since Banyan Tree Tianjin Riverside opened, the hotel team makes regular visits to Tianjin Tongzhizhou Autistic Rehabilitation Centre. The team has grown to understand the children well, from the children’s hobbies and personalities to their habits. The hotel staff learnt how to communicate better with the children, loving them in ways that went beyond purely the giving of gifts.
Back in 2016, a family was going through a rough time, financially strapped and required help. The autistic boy's father was unwell and his mother had to leave her job to take care of her husband and son. In view of this, the team organised a charity auction to raise money, highly committed to making a difference in the lives of these children.
