Ritz-Carlton to reach out to underprivileged

Doha 27th July 2013: The Ritz-Carlton, Doha has planned a Community Footprints programme for the Holy Month of Ramadan. As part of this programme, the hotel has decided to do some good activities including getting across impoverished children and unlucky families during Ramadan.

The Ritz-Carlton, Doha sponsors the renovation of the house of a family by co-operating with The One, Qatar’s premium furniture retail chain. And, during the renewal of the house, the hotel will accommodate the family at The Ritz- Carlton, Doha. There they will have the absolute care service of the hotel. The hotel staff will take care of the family’s meals and host dedicated activities to promote the spirit of Ramadan. All These is done as part of ‘Give Back Getaways’ initiative, which is associated with giving in-kind donations and volunteer help to the family and contributing to the local community permanently

The cluster general manager of the Ritz-Carlton, Doha, Hoss Vetry said, “The Ritz-Carlton, Doha aims to use this initiative to raise further awareness on the importance of sharing and giving back to the society during and after the holy month.”

On Tuesday, the Ramadan tent in Al Wosail grand ballroom has offered as the Iftar venue for a group of children and adults from Dhreima orphanage. The staff of the hotel communicated with the children and taught them about the nutrition value of each Ramadan dish and traditional juice. Thus, during Ramadan, in addition to serving the local communities, the hotel has focused on the welfare of children.

150 Iftar meal boxes will be prepared and granted daily to the organisation for people in need by the hotel. Its staff will visit public labour camps to distribute the iftar meals. This is done with its tie-up with Qatar Red Crescent for the second successive year.

Starting from August 5, The Ritz-Carlton, Doha will look for people to do activities including flooring, carpeting, painting, repairing as well as delivering brand-new furniture and other fittings voluntarily.
