In line with its well established CSR campaign with Friends of Cancer Patients (FOCP), Ramada Downtown Dubai has donated more than $3,540 to the organisation, via Emirates Red Crescent.
The Ramada team, headed by general manager, Ramada Downtown Dubai, Shahzad Butt, was greeted by head, Emirates Red Crescent Dubai, HE Mohammed Abdullah Al Haj Al Zarouni, who accepted the donation on behalf of the organisation.
Butt spoke of the donation: “In this ‘Year of Giving’, we pledge continuous assistance to FOCP. Ramada Downtown Dubai has been a proud partner of the organisation since 2014, and we aim to involve not just our team, but the guests as well. Through this charitable initiative, we can raise awareness about the condition and provide moral and monetary support to cancer patients and their families.”
Recognising the property’s generosity, Emirates Red Crescent presented Ramada Downtown Dubai with a token of appreciation.
The hotel provides complimentary VIP stay and activity vouchers for one patient endorsed by FOCP, joined by his or her family every month. It also raises funds for the organisation through voluntary guest contributions and by selling ‘Fight Cancer’ shirts.
