Dubai, UAE (August 17, 2011) – The management team of Ramada Hotel & Suites Ajman, a premier destination for business and leisure travellers, is spearheading a campaign to support the victims of drought and famine in Somalia, Djibouti and Ethiopia.
Monetary contributions will be donated by the property’s top management and hotel staff to the relief effort that is being carried out by several organizations in the UAE as per the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Rule of Dubai.
Mr. Iftikhar Hamdani, Executive Assistant Manager, Ramada Hotel & Suites Ajman, said: “We would like to support our Somali brothers in this time of crisis. The hotel staff has decided to contribute an amount equivalent to their one day salary and the top management will contribute money equivalent to five days of their salary. We would like to encourage other organizations to contribute as much as possible especially during this holy month of Ramadan because any contribution will definitely help our brothers who are living each day without food and water.”
Over 165 million people in the Horn of Africa region are affected by the drought which hit Somalia, Djibouti and Ethiopia. Thousands of displaced people need food, accommodation and health care. During the past weeks, reports have indicated that more than 29,000 children died of hunger.
The relief operations are supported by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces and followed up by Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler’s Representative in the Western Region Chairman of the Red Crescent Authority (RCA).
