Fundraising Agreement Between WFP (World Food Program) & Holiday Inn Dubai Loves You! Campaign
Holiday Inn Dubai’s dedicated team headed by the CEO Roxana Jaffer met with Monica Marshall, Global Head of Private Partnerships of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), in a private signing ceremony on December 11th, 2012.
The ceremony symbolised the consummation of the hotels endeavour and commitment to WFP for 2013 for feeding the hungry children of the world, with a particular attention to the typhoon-hit Philippines.
The Holiday Inn Dubai Loves You Campaign was initiated in 2007, in a pledge to go beyond the hotel’s core mandate and inculcate in the staff an ethos of sharing based on the words of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) “Life is not worth living, unless lived for someone else”. Through this Campaign, the hotel joined hands with its staff, guests and business partners with the ultimate target to raise enough funds to feed 100,000 hungry children by the end of 2012.
Roxana remarked: “This was the coming together of many and we are humbled that the efforts have been recognised of all who participated in this significant partnership. We pray that we can do better in the New Year and help alleviate the plight of young children.”
