In the spirit of thoughtfulness and hope, Oryx Rotana Doha has held a BBQ lunch for the elders at the Qatar Foundation for Elderly People Care (IHSAN) on February 16th, Monday. The event was part of the hotel’s initiatives to raise awareness on the importance of sharing and giving back to society.

It was a special lunch this time around as elders visiting from the United Arab Emirates took part in the event as well. A total of 16 elderly men and 10 elderly ladies from the UAE along with the elders from IHSAN were accommodated in the event. Oryx Rotana colleagues have yet again spent a memorable time with the seniors from the foundation. A couple of fun games were arranged and special giveaways were also given at the center.

“Oryx Rotana Doha is proud to support IHSAN. This lunch for IHSAN residents is organized within Rotana’s Corporate Social Responsibility towards the community. We are thankful to them for joining us and sharing their insights. 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 honor them. We feel really privileged for hosting this lunch.” said Kevork Deldelian, General Manager of Oryx Rotana.

“Spending valuable time with the elderly is a good act and we encourage all members of the society to do the same and cherish these moments.”

Mr. Khalid Abdullah Hussein, Public Relations Manager at IHSAN acknowledged and thanked the colleagues from Oryx Rotana for their nice gesture to host this amazing lunch at the Qatar Foundation for Elderly People Care. This act brought pleasure to the residences at IHSAN. He also stressed the desire of the organization to continue with these activities with the hotel; emphasizing that this will positively reflect on the services provided to the elderly.

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 cared for.

The hotel will also be providing lunch for the UAE elders’ tour on February 18th, Wednesday. Seventy lunch boxes will be distributed to the group as they complete their tour to the city.
