Jaffer has also touched hearts through the hotel’s “Loves You Campaign.” Since its inception, the hotel staff  have successfully held various awareness and fund-raising drives in their own small way, not only to build a civil society in the UAE but also to help the needy in other parts of the world.

"It is humbling to know that as a leader, standing in for what's right and displaying courage to uphold my convictions, that I should be nominated," she said, giving credit to her team for the achievement. – TradeArabia News Service
