Millennium Hotels joins forces with Al Jalila Foundation

DUBAI, October 17, 2017

Millennium Hotels and Resorts have announced a partnership with non-profit organisation Al Jalila Foundation.

Dedicated to furthering healthcare research and education, the foundation was founded by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. The union aims to raise funds for children’s medical education and research through a series of fundraising activities across the group’s current portfolio of 32 hotels.

To mark the partnership, notable members of both organisations came together for the official signing last week at Millennium Hotels and Resort’s head office in Dubai. Al Jalila Foundation’s CEO Dr. Abdulkareem Sultan Al Olama and Sulaiman Baharoun, director of Partnerships and Sustainability, signed with Millennium Hotels and Resorts, Middle East and Africa chief operating officer Kevork Deldelian and chief legal officer Emad Majid a Memorandum of Understanding to celebrate the start of the partnership.

“Al Jalila Foundation’s work saves countless lives here in the UAE through medical research, education and treatment, and we’re thrilled to be able to do our part to help them. The team are busy organising a series of events across our various hotels in the UAE and we can’t wait to get started.” said Deldelian.

Al Olama said: “The Millennium Hotels and Resorts guest donation initiative dedicated to mental health is a perfect demonstration of how organisations are able to champion a cause to improve lives. Sustainable philanthropy is the backbone to funding our healthcare programs and with these dedicated funds we can bring hope to those affected by mental health. This partnership also provides Al Jalila Foundation with a platform to reach the larger community, including international visitors to support a cause that affects millions of people around the world.” - TradeArabia News Service
