Marriott International

Marriott International brought back its ‘Iftar for Cabs’ for the 10th year for the Holy Month of Ramadan.

The initiative saw participating Marriott International properties across the Middle East and Africa, including six properties in Jordan – Al Manara, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Saraya Aqaba, Amman Marriott Hotel, Dead Sea Marriott Resort & Spa, Sheraton Amman Al Nabil Hotel, The St. Regis Amman and W Amman Hotel – distribute Iftar packs to cab drivers on May 14.

Catering teams at each hotel prepared Iftar packs, which included a diverse selection of food and beverage items. Associates from across various departments within the hotels, including catering, administration and guest services, joined forces to bring the ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative to life.

Launched in 2010, the ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative has turned into an annual tradition for many cab drivers throughout the region. The initiative has been widely appreciated by hotel owners, local communities and transport authorities.

“We thank the cab drivers who support our hotels throughout the year,” chief operating officer – Middle East, Marriott International, Guido De Wilde. “Iftar for Cabs embodies the spirit of Ramadan and we are extremely proud of our hotel teams as they unite to give back and recognise important members of our community.”
