DeSilva hotels have actively supported and undertaken actions for the benefit of charities and social campaigns since the moment our chain’s first hotel was established.
DeSilva Code of Corporate Social Responsibility turns the locations of our hotels across Poland to good use by focusing action on supporting initiatives that are crucial for local communities. Leaving a large margin for autonomous decision making by every DeSilva establishment, we make efforts to set one common policy for all supported actions, which is assisting children and adolescents living in residential children’s homes in a variety of ways, including when they make steps towards adulthood, and encouraging the disabled to find jobs.
