Le Meridien Al Aqah Beach Resort in Fujairah recently hosted a charity event ‘Gift of Giving 2014’, benefiting orphans, underprivileged children, youth and those with disabilities.
The event engaged children with fun activities, games and a meaningful Ramadan-themed drama that was specially created for children by Action Care. The children were co-ordinated by Beit Al Khair, Fujairah Welfare Association and Fujairah Social Development Center.
“The holy month of Ramadan gives us the opportunity to reach out to the underprivileged and make a difference in their lives by nurturing them with inspiration, happiness and education. Witnessing the children partake and enjoying this fun-filled day is the greatest reward my associates and I can receive for hosting this event,” said Patrick Antaki – General Manager, Le Meridien Al Aqah Beach Resort.
‘Gift of Giving’ is an annual event, held during the holy month of Ramadan. The event provides volunteering opportunities for the organizers and hotel associates where they are able to give back to society, and Ramadan is also all about giving.
Le Meridien Al Aqah Beach Resort participates in various CSR activities year round which include ‘Clean up Arabia – an Emirates Diving Association initiative and Starwood Hotels’ annual initiates – ‘Iftar for Cabs’ during Ramadan as well as ‘Road to Awareness’ in partnership with ‘Coast to Coast’.
