Crown's Golden Re­lay: Help­ing Chil­dren with Dis­abil­i­ties 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 pro­vides 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 were re­quired to 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.

The Yayasan Sayap Ibu branch in Ban­ten prov­ince is the Dis­place­ment & Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion of Dis­ad­van­taged Com­pounded Chil­dren, a non-profit and non­govern­men­tal 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 car­ing for aban­doned tod­dlers since 25 May 1955.

YSI- Ban­ten cur­rently ac­com­mo­dates 37 chil­dren in an or­phan­age and at the same time helps more than 440 chil­dren with dis­abil­i­ties 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 syn­drome, cere­bral palsy, autism and oth­ers.

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

1. As­sist with speech, care and ed­u­ca­tion of ne­glected chil­dren with dis­abil­i­ties

2. Seek phys­i­cal, psy­cho­log­i­cal and so­cial re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion

3. Pro­vide op­ti­mal, qual­ity so­cial ser­vices

4. Im­ple­ment child pro­tec­tion and care
