The Youth Company (TYC) - Youth run social enterprise in Qatar - along with Hilton Hotel Doha’s staff were spotted volunteering at Hamad Hospital’s main Emergency & Trauma unit last Saturday. The event, that took place in partnership with Hamad Medical Corporation, aimed to provide dates and water to the patients, doctors, nurses, security and families waiting at the trauma center.

Hilton’s executive team, including their Training Manager, Operations Manager and Management Trainees arrived at the hospital 30 minutes before the iftar, and were oriented by TYC & HMC’s staff regarding the distribution spots. The volunteers were able to engage with the doctors, patients and families at the hospital during the activity.

"Giving back something to the community is one of our priorities at Hilton Doha. We enjoy charity events, especially , if they involve the youth. We think that it is great what The Youth Company is doing and how they inspire others with their events." said Joelle Chan, the Director of Operations of Hilton Doha.

This iftar distribution was a part of 7asanat Olympics program that provides the youths of Qatar with volunteering opportunities everyday throughout the whole month of Ramadan. The program has successfully engaged 120 young volunteers by providing above 700 volunteering hours.
