As part of its ongoing commitment to the Holy Month of Ramadan, Marriott International celebrated its ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative at participating hotels in the Middle East, including fifteen in Qatar. During the hour of Iftar on Monday, April 10, cab drivers who drove through the main entrances of the Le Royal Meridien Doha, Sharq Village & Spa, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel, and Sheraton Grand Doha Resort & Convention Hotel received complimentary Iftar packs to break their fast.

Catering teams at each of the aforementioned hotels and fifteen other Marriott International Doha-based properties have prepared Iftar packs, which included a diverse selection of food and beverage items. Associates from across various departments within all hotels, including Catering, Administration and Guest Services joined forces to bring the ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative to life. This year participating Marriott International properties in Qatar personally distributed over 1,100 Iftar packs to cab drivers.

Launched in 2010, the ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative has turned into an annual tradition for many cab drivers throughout the region. The initiative has been widely appreciated by hotel owners, local communities, and transport authorities.

Iftar for Cabs embodies the spirit of Ramadan as a company to the communities in which we operate. We believe in the power of community and it's heartwarming to see our hotel teams come together to make a positive impact on recognizing the tireless efforts of cab drivers.` said Belal Al Kadry, Chair of the Qatar Business Council and General Manager of Sheraton Grand Doha Resort & Convention Hotel.

The ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative falls under Marriott International’s Sustainability and Social Impact Platform, Serve 360: Doing Good in Every Direction, which guides how the company makes a positive and sustainable impact wherever it does business. From empowerment opportunities to sustainable hotel development, the platform is designed to foster business growth while balancing the needs of associates, customers, owners, the environment and communities. One of the priority areas, or “coordinates”, of Serve 360 is Nurture our World. ‘Iftar for Cabs’ is an initiative that directly supports and brings this vision to life.

Hotels providing team support to the Iftar for Cabs initiative at the distribution locations were Al Messila, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Delta Hotels by Marriott City Center Doha, Element City Center Doha, Element West Bay Doha, Four Points by Sheraton Doha, JW Marriott Marquis City Center Doha, Le Meridien City Center Doha, Le Royal Meridien Doha, Marriott Executive Apartments City Center Doha, Marriott Marquis City Center Doha, Qabila West Bay Hotel, Sharq Village & Spa, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Sheraton Grand Doha Resort & Convention Hotel, The Ritz-Carlton Doha, The St. Regis Doha, The St. Regis Marsa Arabia Island, The Pearl Qatar, The Westin Doha Hotel & Spa, W Doha.
