Some noteworthy initiatives were the Valentine’s “Tea Party” for Children with special needs, 2010 Pakistan Flood Relief appeal sending 16 containers to rebuild destructed areas and Labour Camp Carom Tournament to give respite to labourers who were not getting paid during the recession as well as a “Marathon For a Cause” and Iftar for underprivileged and orphan children supported by Action Care and Al Noor Training Centre.
Guests can break their fast with a distinctive Iftar buffet or humbly enjoy the sumptuous Sohour set menu with Holiday Inn Dubai – Al Barsha's special offerings for the Holy month of Ramadan beginning end of June.
Both the Iftar Buffet and the Sohour meal will be served at The Gem Garden, Holiday Inn Dubai – Al Barsha's all day dining restaurant.
“The Iftar Buffet will be quite an extensive one, a blend of Oriental and Continental cuisine, with an array of typical Ramadan beverages,” explains Mr. George Sarkis, Director of Food and Beverage.
Available every evening from sunset to 10 pm, the Iftar Buffet, set up with live cooking stations, will be priced at AED 120 per person (inclusive of 10% municipality fee and 10% service charge).
Following the Iftar Buffet every day, from 12 midnight to 4 am of the Holy month, will be the Sohour set menu. Comprising a predominantly Oriental spread, the Sohour set menu will be priced at AED 85/- per person (inclusive of 10% municipality fee & 10% service charge), and is also available for Room Service.
Ramadan is a time to indulge in acts of charity, kindness and benevolence, the Second Great Pillar of Islam, and Holiday Inn Dubai – Al Barsha will keep the spirit of the Holy month going with its “Loves You Campaign.”
Ms. Roxana Jaffer says, "Holiday Inn Dubai – Al Barsha is a partner with the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) in its bid to fight hunger, and as part of this scheme, launched the 'Loves You Campaign' in 2007 as a 'Creative Change Enterprise' to instill social responsibility towards those less fortunate than ourselves. Till now, we have been successful in reaching out to the underprivileged in several ways that has helped make a difference in their lives."
"This year too, as in previous years, part of the income from each room booking during the Holy month and each Iftar meal will go towards a donation that will feed a hungry child for a day," added Ms. Roxana.
Food insecurity and hunger is a reality not just in under developed countries but in many of the developed nations too. Fighting the hunger crisis are several organisations and the WFP being the world's largest humanitarian agency.
"Holiday Inn Dubai – Al Barsha has never let an opportunity to contribute to the cause pass by. Ever since the inception of the 'Loves You Campaign', the hotel staff have successfully held various awareness and fund-raising drives in their own small way, not only to build a civil society in the UAE but also to help the needy in other parts of the world,” stated Ms. Roxana.
