Starwood Hotels & Resorts celebrated Iftar with hundreds of taxi drivers from across the Middle East.

As part of its ongoing commitment to the Holy Month of Ramadan, Starwood Hotels & Resorts is celebrating its fifth annual ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative at over 40 participating Starwood hotels in the Middle East.

During the hour of Iftar on Wednesday, July 16, 2014, all cab drivers who drive through the main entrance of any of the participating Starwood hotels will receive Iftar packs to break their fast.

“‘Iftar for Cabs’ represents the spirit of Ramadan and we are extremely proud of our hotels’ teams who come together for this initiative every year and go that extra step to give back to the community,” said Guido de Wilde, Senior Vice President & Regional Director, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Middle East.

“This initiative is our way of appreciating the cab drivers who support our hotels throughout the year by providing transportation services to our guests,” Guido added.

The ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative – ideated by Starwood Hotels & Resorts – has been running since 2010 and has since become an annual tradition for many cab drivers throughout the region. Last year, Starwood delivered over 3,000 Iftar packs to cab drivers across the region.
