Two premium Rosewood hotels of Riyadh — Al-Faisaliah Hotel and Al-Khozama Hotel — have enlisted the help of their cuddly friends and revered guests to help make a difference to the lives of disabled children in Saudi Arabia.
The hotels renewed their call to support a campaign to raise SR100,000 for the Disabled Children’s Association (DCA), a local charity that cares for handicapped children under the supervision of Prince Sultan bin Salman.
“The funds raised will help to provide treatment, therapy equipment and family support services for disabled children currently sheltered by the DCA,” said Peter Finamore, managing director of Rosewood Hotels in Riyadh.
“We are delighted with the result that we have achieved so far, but equally determined to achieve our goal in the next few months,” said Finamore.
He said the Rosewood Hotels are an active participant in the local community life, and “it is our privilege to contribute to worthy causes.”
The charity campaign entitled “Make a change to a child’s future” is part of the hotels’ corporate social responsibility to support charitable causes like the DCA.
Guests staying at Al-Faisaliah and Al-Khozama hotels, as well as visitors and friends to these hotels situated in the center of the capital city, are being given an opportunity to donate to DCA children under this campaign, said a hotel executive, said Finamore.
He said all the 13 restaurants and front desks at both luxury hotels are participating in the campaign from Aug. 1, 2011.
The campaign has received wide participation from Rosewood’s loyal guests and successfully raised SR65,000 until Dec. 31, 2011.
Finamore said the campaign offers guests the opportunity to donate SR5 or more for the DCA.
Guests staying at both hotels will also have the opportunity to donate when checking out.
