UAE-headquartered hospitality company, TIME Hotels, has strengthened the positive impact it is making on local and regional communities by raising funds for a hospital caring for children with cancer and a marine conservation programme, as part of its roster of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives.
Extending its outreach programme beyond the UAE, it partnered with 57357 Children’s Cancer Hospital Foundation in Egypt as part of a year-long charity initiative, raising almost USD 9,500 in funds, for the treatment of sick children, covering the cost of examinations, tests, scans and of course medicine.
Mohamed Awadalla, CEO of TIME Hotels, said: “Over the years, TIME Hotels has been involved in a range of activities designed to give back to and support the communities we operate in. Everything we do is backed by our commitment to have a positive impact by adding value to people’s lives, through a combination of cash or in-kind donations, education and employee engagement activities.”
Closer to home, the chain’s marine conservation programme, in collaboration with the Emirates Nature – WWF – a local entity of the World Wildlife Fund (EWS-WWF) – raised more than USD 4,000 in funds which has helped facilitate two key projects: The Gulf Green Turtle Project and The Marine Protected Areas.
