The Chinhoyi University of Technology (CUT) Group of Hotels demystified the myth that hotels are beyond the reach of the disadvantaged in society after the institution hosted children from an orphanage for a luncheon.

The CUT Group of Hotels hosted over 40 orphaned children from Chinhoyi-based orphanage, Good Shepherd, for a luncheon at one of the university’s two hotels in a show of respect for humanity.

The occasion was also attended by management and staff from the group of hotels and some adults who share the same childhood experience with the those in orphanages.

CUT hotels general manager Innocent Manyera told the children from Good Shepherd that they deserve to enjoy life’s benefits and its luxuries as much as those staying with their families, adding access to hotels is not a preserve for the rich alone.

A manager with an unnamed organisation Mr Phillip Wutawunashe gave an inspirational speech during the luncheon, telling the children he once lived in an orphanage for seven years but did not let his situation limit his potential to make it in life.

The board chairman of Good Shepherd Children’s Home Mr Eshwin Makozho applauded the gesture by the group of hotels to demystify the concept that hotels are not easily accessible.

Meanwhile, the hotels handed over a 32-inch LED television set, some bed sheets and some dinner sets to the orphanage.
