Yesterday, Starwood Hotels & Resorts celebrated Iftar with taxi drivers across Abu Dhabi as a part of its seventh annual ‘Iftar for Cabs’ and its ongoing commitment to the Holy Month of Ramadan. This year’s initiative brought 48 hotels, Le Royal Méridien Abu Dhabi, across the region together for the worthy cause.
Individually packed Iftar packs prepared by hotels, which included a selection of food and beverage items. The Iftar packs were then distributed to cab drivers at the main entrance of each hotel with the help of various members across the different departments of the properties, in celebration of the spirit of the Holy month of Ramadan.
Launched in 2010, the ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative has turned into an annual tradition for many cab drivers throughout the region. The initiative has also been widely appreciated by hotel owners, local communities and transport authorities.
