Ramada Hotel & Suites Ajman has trained and hired deaf and mute employees as part of its continuous commitment to reach out to the community and provide equal opportunity.

Under Ajman Tourism Development Department’s Zayed Day for Humanitarian Initiative, in cooperation with the Ministry of Community Development, Ramada Ajman provided training and internship to Musab Abdul Raheem Jaber Saleh. A deaf and mute Jordanian national, he worked with the front office department as bell boy and also as a valet parking driver for a month. The programme aimed to train and employ people of determination, in an effort to integrate them into the community and help them qualify for government and private sector jobs in the future.

Early this year, the hotel also hired Rizwan Uddin, a deaf and mute Pakistani national, as a ken fix-it technician. As part of the engineering department, his skills include carpentry, painting and masonry.

Commenting on the hires, Ramada Hotel & Suites Ajman general manager Iftikhar Hamdani said: “We are extremely proud to support and offer opportunities to all the deserving people of determination. Their perseverance and dedication inspire us that nothing should stop us from being productive and contributing to our community. We will continue our efforts to help such individuals and groups as part of our corporate social responsibility initiatives.”
