25 November 2014 Our Hostel Our Home
It isn’t easy living in a hostel, especially when you have to deal with other people’s different lifestyles and habits. This is especially so for foreign workers, who come from rural areas and may not be familiar with the ways of keeping their place clean and working together to do so. This makes it possible for hostels to be left in a mess, especially when left unchecked.
This was so for LH Plus in the beginning, when an audit was done by Walmart on the hostels here. “At the time the hostels, like most hostels, didn’t make the cut of being a clean and safe place to stay,” said CEO of LH Plus, Callum Chen. Upon realising the condition of these hostels, a plan was devised that would make everyone living in the hostels willingly clean up after themselves and for LH Plus’ management to provide for them in return.
