Oryx Rotana Doha's Iftar at Qatar Foundation for Elderly People

With the holy month of Ramadan and in the spirit of thoughtfulness and hope, Oryx Rotana Doha held an Iftar for the elders at the Qatar Foundation for Elderly People Care (Ihsan) on 7 July.

Oryx Rotana colleagues spent a memorable time with seniors from the foundation sharing stories about their life experiences in Qatar. Presents, such as garangao pouches were also given out at the center.

“In keeping with the spirit of the holy month, Oryx Rotana Doha is proud to support Ihsan. This iftar for Ihsan residents is organised within Rotana’s corporate social responsibility towards the community. We are thankful to them all for joining us and for sharing their experiences. These senior residences have greatly contributed to the development and well-being of our community and our future. Now, it is our duty to support and honour them, we feel really privileged hosting this Iftar” said Kevork Deldelian, General Manager of Oryx Rotana.

“Celebrating the holy month of Ramadan with the elderly is a good act and we encourage all members of the society to do the same and cherish these moments.”

Khalid Abdulla Hussein, director of Public Relations and Media at Ihsan, stressed that Ihsan is always keen and interested to host such events that spread joy among Ihsan residents, especially in Ramadan, which is the month of solidarity and gatherings.

He also highlighted that Ihsan has a strong record in hosting such events annually in co-operation with several organisations in Qatar, and QFB is one of the leading banks in supporting Ihsan and its activities.

Qatar Foundation for Elderly People Care (Ihsan) was established in January 2003 under the Supreme Council for Family Affairs and the guidance of Her Highness Sheikha Moza Bin Nasser. The aim of this institution is to provide health care services and social and psychological support for the elderly who do not have families to care for them.

The hotel will also be taking part in Qatar Charity’s TAYF program which is tailored for in-kind contributions used to help the needy. Two hundred bags will be collected by Qatar Charity from the hotel.
