Sunset Hospitality backs UNHCR’s refugee initiative

DUBAI, 26 days ago

Sunset Hospitality Group (SHG), renowned for exceptional hospitality and lifestyle experiences in Dubai, has joined forces with UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, to support 100 refugees and displaced families during Ramadan.

As part of UNHCR’s annual Global Ramadan and Zakat fundraising campaigns, the donation for #EveryGiftCounts will cover the essential needs of displaced families, including food, clean water, shelter, and medicine for children.

The campaign urges the public to show generosity to refugees and internally displaced persons (IDP) observing Ramadan while facing increased poverty, hardships, and food insecurity

Antonio Gonzalez, CEO, said: “We hope that our partnership with UNHCR will impact the lives of refugees and displaced persons in the region and around the world. Through UNHCR, we are giving lifesaving assistance to those with the greatest needs. We hope our donation can be a lifeline for those in dire need of this assistance.”

There are over 84 million displaced people worldwide who are forced to flee or leave their country because of persecution, war, violence, natural disasters, or climate change. The donation would mean medicine for an elderly in need of urgent medical care, a safe roof over the head of a widowed mother and her children, a warm meal on an iftar table, or clean drinking water.

“Our participation in the #EveryGiftCounts campaign aims to help refugees and internally displaced families observe the Holy Month with peace of mind and dignity. Furthermore, we hope to bring warmth to the hearts of those observing this Ramadan amidst increased hardship,” added Rania Roufael, Group HR Director.

The partnership is part of SHG’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) activities to make the world better, a company statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
