Al Bustan Rotana Dubai manifested its strong commitment towards giving back to the community by serving Iftar and spending time with the Thalassemia patients at Latifa Hospital recently.
The five star hotel’s management team and colleagues visited the hospital bringing in Iftar culinary specialties prepared by the property’s master chefs.
The event was attended by the patients, their families and staff of the hospital, who all enjoyed the lavish Iftar while young patients were also treated with gifts during the event.
Thalassemia is a blood disorder passed down through families in which the body makes an abnormal form of hemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen. The disorder results in excessive destruction of red blood cells, which leads to anemia. Al Bustan Rotana supports Latifa Hospital’s goals to combat the disease and the recent Iftar hosted for the patients is just one of the hotel’s initiatives to showcase its support.
Commenting on this corporate social responsibility activity, Hussein Hachem, Cluster General Manager of Al Bustan Rotana and Al Murooj Rotana remarked, “It was an amazing opportunity for us to be able to host this Iftar for the Thalassemia patients and their families. To see the patients having fun despite their sickness was priceless and we look forward to future partnerships with Latifa Hospital. We have supported them in the past and we will continue to do so.”
