Colors Fly Outside Sofitel Dubai Downtown
Children with special needs enjoy vibrant fun as they throw paint on a Renault Dokker as part of a very special morning for artistic expression
Dubai, UAE – 22 May 2016
This morning 10 children from Al Noor Training Centre for Persons with Disabilities received an unusual experience ahead of Ramadan where they really let their creative expression loose.
The Renault Dokker, provided by Renault Middle East in partnership with Arabian Automobiles Co. LLC, was parked outside at the front entrance of the hotel and the children were encouraged to paint, splash and splatter the vehicle with a rainbow of colors.
This initiative, called The Color Splash, is part of Planet 21 program, which celebrates the values of ACCOR Hotels by engaging in activities that enrich and help the local community. The event was supported by the group of organizations, Al Noor Centre, Sofitel Dubai Downtown, Renault Middle East and Arabian Automobiles. The results from the morning will be proudly displayed outside the property throughout Ramadan to educate the hotel’s guests and promote understanding of the special needs community.
“Together with our partners Renault Middle East and Arabian Automobiles, we have organized this fun-filled morning to allow Al Noor Center’s Children with Special Needs to express themselves and ignite their inner creativity. The new colorful Renault Dokker will be on display during Ramadan for all our guests to see and we encourage everyone to come down for a visit.” said Ammar Hilal, General Manager at Sofitel Dubai Downtown.
