Chiva-Som International Health Resort Gives Back to Thai Communities

Environmental awareness and preservation in the local community is the motto of Chiva-Som International Health Resort in Hua Hin, Thailand, so to keep busy while the resort is closed for renovations over the next six months, the staff is maintaining their philanthropic lifestyle. The Chiva-Som staff has been volunteering and recently provided aid at food stations during the Hua Hin Marathon, which Chiva-Som chairman and CEO, Krip Rojanastien completed. The staff used their expertise by performing massages and stretches to the marathon runners after they completed the long run. 

With the renovations that started in May, each department of Chiva-Som had more time to volunteer  towards the activities that keep them involved in the local communities. There were many different department activities going on such as beach cleanings that consisted of picking up on the waste on the beach and around the ferry pier; monthly cleaning activities at Krailas Niwate Mangrove forest and the street next to Chiva-Som; raising funds by selling pineapples, corn, and local fruit in Prachuap Khiri Khan to donate food at the Hua Hin Dogs Shelter; repainting the staircase at Khao Krailas temple; and more. 

Chiva-Som's wellness practitioners, together with 21 Chiva-Som staff volunteers, also participated in a medical mission in Pa-la-U Village, home to the Karen communities, one of the largest hill tribes in Southeast Asia. The practitioners offered health advice and provided treatments such as clinic assessments, acupuncture, physiotherapy, hands-on lice removal, and haircuts. Staff played games and active recreation activities with the children of the village, while donating clothes, rice, canned fish, milk, and personal hygiene items.
