Ramada Ajman hosted a charity iftar for labourers during Ramadan 2017.

Ramada Hotel & Suites Ajman hosted an iftar for more than 150 labourers in the emirate as part of its CSR programme for Ramadan. 

Instead of distributing packed iftar meals, the hotel’s charity committee and food and beverage team prepared a full banquet set up at Al Rehab Perfume Factory in Ajman, complete with traditional Ramadan dates and juices, starters, main course, fruits and desserts. 

“Ramadan is a time of giving back to the community and sharing our blessings with the less fortunate, including the labourers. It is very heart-warming to see the smile on the faces of our brothers at the labour camp, and our team wanted them to experience a comfortable and delicious Iftar to let them know that we appreciate all their hard work and important contributions to the society," general manager Iftikhar Hamdani said.

Hamdani revealed that the hotel’s charity committee is looking into the possibility of distributing extra food from the hotel’s banquet and buffet to the labour camps, even after Ramadan. He said: “It won’t be an easy task, logistically, but we aim to come up with a feasible solution, and encourage other hotels and establishments in Ajman to join the cause as well.”
