As part of Hyatt Community Grants, the philanthropic program that allows employees to make charitable donations, Hyatt Regency Merida donated US$5,000 to El Hogar de Loreto for its positive impact on the community.

“Receiving this grant is a great honor, and we are grateful to Hyatt Regency Merida to have been selected for this generous contribution,” said Loreto Marrufo, founder and director of Hogar de Loreto. “We know that this donation will be very useful in achieving our goals to continue the expansion of the building, enabling spaces for rehabilitation therapies and to acquire more equipment and hire more specialists. ”
