Holiday Inn Dubai - Al Barsha CEO Roxana Jaffer has pledged that every iftar meal consumed by a guest in the hotel's The Gem Garden restaurant will help raise funds used to feed those in need.

The pledge is part of the hotel's corporate sustainability programme "Loves You Campaign “and serves to underscore its role as a responsible global corporate citizen. As a member of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), HIAB abides to UNGC’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

“Our goal for 2017 is to support emergency food assistance in most needed countries. In–house guests can help us to feed starving children around the world by making a voluntary donation of AED 5 (USD 1.4) upon check-out to feed five hungry children,” Jaffer said.
