Speaking about their CSR activities, Kevork Deldelian, COO of Millennium Hotels & Resorts in the Middle East, said: “The extensive campaign planned for the holy month reflects the group’s commitment to its CSR strategy. The holy month of Ramadan is known for celebrating its spirit of interacting with the community and embracing the act of giving. We would like to thank BNI UAE for their association with Millennium Hotels and Resorts MEA in helping us play a role of giving back to the community.”

Millennium Hotels and Resorts MEA has partnered with Al Jalila Foundation since February 2018, which resulted in the launch of the Taddamon programme that encourages guests staying at participating Millennium hotels the option to donate AED 5 ($1.36) to the non-profit organisation. This year, participating properties have also pledged to donate AED 5 ($1.36) on every iftar sold during the holy month of Ramadan to the Foundation’s annual fund-raising Ramadan campaign, basma.


According to the property, all proceeds collected during the campaign will be used to support the Foundation’s paediatric programme aimed at children with life-threatening diseases or debilitating illnesses.
