On the 7th of July, Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan by Rotana hosted a donation drive where donations were collected and given in support of the cause of the Red Crescent. There is no better way to round up the Holy month of Ramadan than by giving to the less privileged around. The collection of donations for Red Crescent was the second of the four social activities planned by Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan by Rotana during the month of Ramadan.
The Red Crescent’s mission is to mobilize the human power to support the vulnerable. There is no better time to assist in the achievement of their mission than during Ramadan which is a month of reflection and inspiration. Collection boxes were placed in different locations for colleagues and guests allowing them to donate clothes, money, food (canned items) to support the needy and raw materials from hotel suppliers were also collected. All items collected were packed by HOD’s, assistants and other volunteers and delivered to Grace conservation for onward delivery to those in need.
“Helping others in need is not only a responsibility of life; it is what gives meaning to life. We organized this charitable event so as to allow everyone to give whatever they have because sometimes those little things occupy the biggest part of the hearts of those in need. Our initiative highlights the importance of helping others around us as much as we can even before they request for assistance” says Mark Timbrell, General Manager at Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan by Rotana.
Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan by Rotana invited guests to join in this charitable event and give whatever they could give during this month of Ramadan in order to bring a smile to a family’s face as well as share the joy and blessings of the Holy month.
