Crown’ Golden Relay: Helping Disabled Children with Yayasan Sayap Ibu Bintaro

In 2015, Crown marked its fiftieth birthday by holding a charity event called the Golden Relay. Offices around the world took turns to raise money for charitable causes, generating over US$100,000. In appreciation for the donations, the Crown Foundation recently added further donations for each decade of Crown’s existence.

The Crown Worldwide Group is made up of complementary divisions offering business services all over the world. Crown World Mobility, which is a global mobility management for corporate businesses and business critical assignment services. Crown Relocations provides destination services, moving and administrative services to assist individuals and families relocating internationally or domestically. Crown Records Management aims to maximize value from corporate memory through the storage, active management, distribution of information assets across the enterprise, and much more.

Crown employees were asked to nominate charities to share these proceeds in order to support underserved children and young adults. They must meet one of Crown’s core values: determined, caring, open-minded and sharing.

Over 25 nominations were received from Crown offices around the world and, after much deliberation, the judges decided on five possible winning entries that they felt best characterized Crown’s values. Yayasan Sayap Ibu Bintaro was chosen to receive US$10,000 on 22 November 2017.

Yayasan Sayap Ibu branch in Banten province is the Displacement & Rehabilitation of Disadvantaged Compounded Children, a non-profit and non-governmental institution, which was inaugurated on 1 October 2005. It is located in Graha Bintaro, South Tangerang. Yayasan Sayap Ibu Cabang Banten Province (YSI-Banten) is based on Yayasan Sayap Ibu Pusat, which has played a role in the community in handling abandoned toddlers since 25 May 1955.

YSI-Banten currently holds 37 children in an orphanage and at the same time holds more than 440 disabled children from disadvantaged families–children who still live with their parents or other members of their family. The types of disabilities the children have at the compound include Hydrocephalus, Microcephaly, Down’s Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Autism and others.

With the received donation, the foundation will continue to aim for:

  1. Conducting speech, care and education of neglected children with disabilities
  2. Seek physical, psychological and social rehabilitation
  3. Providing optimal, quality social services
  4. Implement child protection and care
