Bahrain Kempinski launches charity drive
Manama, July 10, 2013
The Kempinski Grand and Ixir Hotel Bahrain City Centre has launched a month-long drive to collect unused clothes during Ramadan, a report said.
It plans to hand over donated items to the Helping Hands group, which distributes second-hand goods to needy workers, according to the report in the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
Female clothing will be donated to the Philippine Embassy's shelter housing women in distress.
The initiative coincides with Ramadan and is taking place alongside a charity art exhibition.
Artworks created by local artists using spices are on display at the hotel's Arabic restaurant Baharat and proceeds from sales will go to Alia for Early Intervention and deserving artists.
"At Kempinski, we aim to actively contribute to the local community year-round, but within the sincere spirit of Ramadan, we are diversifying our usual CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) initiatives by getting everyone involved and reaching out to different local charity organisations," said general manager Puneet Singh. – TradeArabia News Service
