Ramada Downtown Dubai recently paid a visit to Emirates Red Crescent to present a cheque for Friends of Cancer Patients (FOCP) and to discuss further cooperation on various CSR activities.
Represented by General Manager Samir Arora, Ramada Downtown Dubai handed over a AED10,000/ donation for FOCP, which was raised from the sale of “Keep Calm and Fight On” shirts, and with partial contribution from the management. The ongoing campaign, which started in 2014, aims to spread awareness and provide moral and financial support to cancer patients and their families. In addition, the hotel continues to provide complimentary stay of one family supported by FOCP every month.
Ramada Downtown Dubai was received by Rashed Khams Al Junaibi and Mohammad Kamal of Emirates Red Crescent. Both parties also talked about potential charitable initiatives in the future, especially in the upcoming Holy Month of Ramadan.
Arora comments: “We have been actively promoting our awareness campaign for FOCP and we are pleased to receive positive feedback and support from our associates and guests. Our team commits to our involvement in the philanthropic activities of FOCP and Emirates Red Crescent, to be able to give back to society and reach out to the needy.”
