PRLog - Mar. 21, 2013 - AL BARSHA, UAE -- Embarking on a noble cause, Copthorne Hotel Dubai staff collected over ten boxes of relief material in aid of Syrian refugees displaced as a result of the on-going conflict in their country.

Mr Alaa Salameh, General Manager, Copthorne Hotel Dubai, said, “Our hotel staff collected more than 10 boxes of clothes, shoes, blankets, toys and other essential material to help the Syrian refugees in Jordan where there has been a huge influx of people.”

He added, “This is the third time that we carried out this campaign.  We began the initiative in August (Ramadan) 2012 and from then on we have been doing it every three months.” The collected materials were subsequently donated to the UAE Red Crescent on March 14, 2013.

This activity comes as part of the hotel’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), which as Mr Salameh put it is “an integral part of our business philosophy.”

Mr Mohammed Abdullah Alhaj Al Zaroni, Manager of the UAE Red Crescent Dubai Branch, was appreciative of the magnanimity shown by the Copthorne Hotel Dubai staff. Leading the Copthorne initiative was its Human Resources and Training Manager Imelda P. Martinez.

The U.N. refugee agency, UNHCR, has warned that the number of refugees outside Syria could triple by the end of the year – from the present one million –  if there is no resolution to the conflict. The millionth refugee was registered recently. Around half their numbers comprise children, most of them under 11.

With its prime location in the heart of the city’s commercial district, and minutes away from the Dubai International Airport and Dubai Creek, Copthorne Hotel Dubai offers direct access to leading business and leisure attractions in the emirate, including Dubai Airport Freezone, Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre, Dubai International Financial Centre, Deira City Centre, Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club, Wild Wadi Water Park Dubai and Jumeirah Beach Park.

Within walking distance is the Deira City Centre Metro Station. Guests have a choice of 188 well-appointed rooms and suites offering spectacular views of Dubai Creek and its surrounding parks from private balconies. On-site facilities include a selection of dining venues, a health and fitness centre, besides a swimming pool and business centre.
