Oryx Rotana Distributes Iftar Meals and Celebrates Garangao as part of the Hotel’s Social Responsibility Initiatives
Doha – 26 June 2016 (WQ): In light of the holy month of Ramadan, Oryx Rotana distributed Iftar packages to motorists who were stuck in traffic and couldn’t make it home on time for Iftar. This initiative was inspired by the hotel’s endless CSR efforts to give back to the community.
All packages were prepared and distributed in accordance to high food and traffic safety standards.
Oryx Rotana simultaneously celebrated the Garangao night in the lobby, Choices restaurant and colleagues’ Dine-Inn. Garangao is an age-old annual Qatari tradition that falls on the 14th night of Ramadan. Numerous candy boxes were distributed to kids in order to celebrate this important part of the Qatari heritage during the Holy Month of Ramadan.
Lana Jwainat, Director of Marketing and Communications at Oryx Rotana Hotel, stated:
“Ramadan is the month of goodness, giving and sharing. Therefore, we strive to undertake initiatives that represent our values and traditions and reflect our social responsibility of bringing happiness to our community. This year, we enhanced the celebration of joy by giving out specially prepared food packages to motorists and Garangao boxes to our visitors and guests as well as children accompanying them.”
“Every year, we look for opportunities to make a difference and participate in such Ramadan activities that are close to the hearts of our colleagues and hotel management. It is always so rewarding to see the happy faces and smiles of the community members,” she concluded.
