Holiday Inn Al Barsha launches Pakistan appeal
Hotel collects supplies to help victims of flood
The Holiday Inn, Al Barsha, Dubai has launched a collection for the Pakistan flood appeal, where guests, visitors and businesses can donate much-needed supplies to the relief effort.
The hotel is collecting clothes, food and medicine for the appeal, to provide supplies for victims of the worst floods in living memory —around 20 million people have been affected according to international aid charity Oxfam.
In addition to collecting goods, the Holiday Inn, Al Barsha is also running an appeal for guests to donate a dollar at check-out as well as at iftars.
The collection is being manned by staff who are donating their free time to participate and will run until September 11. Donations can be made throughout the day at the hotel reception, or left with the concierge at night.
If you would rather donate money, you can do so via the Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC) website which is www.dec.org.uk
