Hospitality group to strengthen the impact it is making on local and regional communities through its wide-ranging CSR plan in line with the Year of Zayed
UAE-headquartered TIME Hotels is set to house a family who lost their home due to a fire, while the Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi Charity Foundation reconstructs the damage.
TIME Ruby Hotel Apartments in Sharjah will host the family for one month following an appeal from the office of Sheikha Azza bint Abdullah Al Nuaimi, Director-General of the Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi Charity Foundation.
The fire broke out in Ajman on Saturday 2nd June, destroying the family’s entire home.
Mohamed Awadalla, CEO, TIME Hotels, said: “It is important, especially during the Holy Month of Ramadan, that we remember those less fortunate than ourselves. The office of Sheikha Azza bint Abdullah Al Nuaimi was seeking the help of hotels or hotel apartments to re-house the family who unfortunately lost their home, and we are delighted to be able to support this tremendous gesture.”
TIME Hotels is embracing the Year of Zayed by strengthening the impact it is making on local and regional communities through its wide-ranging Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives for 2018.
In July, around 60 to 80 team members from TIME Grand Plaza Hotel will donate blood at Latifa Hospital in Dubai. This initiative in collaboration with the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) aims to collect blood in a bid to help patients in need, particularly those suffering from Thalassemia.
TIME Hotels will also be participating in a Quench Your Thirst Day. This activity will see TIME team members distribute between 100 and 200 bottles of water outside TIME Grand Plaza Hotel to taxi and bus drivers.
Earlier this month, TIME Hotels distributed 300 Iftar boxes to mosque visitors prior to prayer. The boxes included chicken biryani, raita, green salad, Arabic bread, a Ramadan sweet, dates and a bottle of water.
Other plans for the remainder of the year include a walk to raise awareness for breast cancer and a community clean-up campaign as well as a Beat Diabetes walk and a can collection day.
There will be several team-building events where gifts will be exchanged between all TIME Hotels’ team members. A talent competition, the annual staff party and the popular waiter race will also take place over the course of the coming six months.
“Over the years, TIME Hotels has been involved in a range of activities designed to give back to and support the communities we operate in. Everything we do is backed by our commitment to have a positive impact, we don’t want to just put a smile on somebody’s face today, we want a more substantial and longer-lasting influence than that,” concluded Awadalla.
