The Radisson Hotel

Radisson Hotel Group to aid Lebanon

DUBAI, September 6, 2020

More than a month after the catastrophic explosion in Beirut on August 4, Radisson Hotel Group has teamed up with relief organisations to protect Lebanon’s children and provide essential humanitarian support on the ground.
 
The blast, which levelled huge swathes of Beirut and displaced hundreds of thousands of people, couldn't have come at a worse time. 
 
Lebanon, a country that has endured decades of violence, including conflicts, terrorist attacks, and its own civil war, was already struggling to contain multiple crises. 
 
In the past year, a breakdown in the country's banking system and skyrocketing inflation triggered mass protests. Even before the coronavirus pandemic hit, the World Bank projected countless people in Lebanon would fall below the poverty line in 2020.
 
Today, because of the port explosion, thousands of people have been left homeless and hungry. 
 
Radisson Hotel Group, currently operating two hotels within Beirut, has teamed up with two charity groups, SOS Children's Villages International in Lebanon to protect the children’s well-being and the Lebanese Red Cross to provide essential humanitarian support on the ground. 
 
Together they have formed a collaboration with the group’s rewards programme, allowing people to donate and support their initiatives.
 
Whilst Radisson Rewards is a global rewards programme that was created to deliver unique and personalised moments, while offering exceptional loyalty benefits to their guests, today Radisson Rewards has become a way of supporting the communities in Lebanon. 
 
Radisson Hotel Group has called upon its members to assist the relief and recovery efforts by donating their Radisson Rewards points or cash. All points which are donated by their members will be converted into cash and sent directly to the charities.
 
With more than 1,400 hotels in operation and under development around the world, Radisson Hotel Group has more than 22 million Radisson Rewards Members and has made it their mission to make a difference.-- Tradearabia News Service
