Emergency Fund to help the victims of the floods at the end of 2011 in Thailand
Yim Kids is a Thai NGO established by AccorHotels employees in 2005 to support all social initiatives in the country aimed at underprivileged communities.
At the end of 2011, Thailand faced a rising water of historic proportions, affecting much of the country. The Accor Foundation donated €50,000 to the NGO Yim Kids to assist rebuilding of communities affected by the floods (houses’ reconstruction, purchase of equipment…) in the central plain of Bangkok. Needs were estimated at €200,000. The Foundation* set up a system involving the Thai government, AccorHotels Thailand, country headquarters (AccorHotels China…), and Accor hotels and employees worldwide.
* In 2013, the Accor Foundation became Solidarity Accor.
