Ramadan Care Packages Night 2012 (with Adopt A Camp)

On Thursday 9th August 2012, we were extremely privileged to be involved with Adopt A Camp’s care package night. The organisation works with Dubai’s labour camps to try to improve the lives of the men who work there.

Al Arabi Travel Agency was represented by Cally (manager), Preti (travel consultant) and Daniel (marketing) and participated in this event as a follow up to the money we donated to Adopt A Camp earlier in the month. We felt that it was great to donate money but it was also extremely satisfying to see the money being put in to action.

We also couldn’t believe how many people showed up! Dubai represented itself in fantastic fashion – even to the point of there being SO many volunteers that a few people didn’t have any work to do.

It was, of course, a great pleasure for us to be involved with such a remarkable organisation and we look forward to maintaining a close relationship with the Adopt A Camp team in future.

Adopt-a-Camp (AAC) is an initiative to meaningfully improve the lives of the men who build the beautiful cities we live in and through them, to reach out and aid the diverse communities from which they come.

Adopt-a-Camp has been working with labourers in labour camps for 7 years and currently has 43 camps and 32,200+ men under its wing.

Adopt-A-Camp pay us a visit!

We LOVE corporate responsibility at Al Arabi Travel Agency. We very much enjoy talking about which charities we’d love to help out and we are extremely proud to be donating to Adopt A Camp this Ramadan.

On August 5th 2012, we received a visit from Saher Sheikh, the founder of Adopt-A-Camp, to not only collect the money we raised but to also educate us a little about exactly what Adopt-A-Camp does and what they aim to achieve.

We’re also sending volunteers to Adopt-A-Camp’s packing night (for all the packages that will be delivered to the labourers) and we’re extremely happy to participate in this. For this evening, Cally (our manager) and Daniel (from marketing) will be helping out.

Ramadan Care Packages Night 2012 with Adopt-A-Camp

At Al Arabi Travel Agency, we feel extremely strongly about corporate social responsibility and we’re always very keen to get involved in fantastic charitable activities.

That’s why this week we’ve made the decision to help out Adopt-A-Camp, a UAE-based charity that strives to improve the living conditions for labourers within Dubai’s labour camps.

Adopt-a-Camp (AAC) is an initiative to meaningfully improve the lives of the men who build the beautiful cities we live in and through them, to reach out and aid the diverse communities from which they come.

Adopt-a-Camp has been working with labourers in labour camps for 7 years and currently has 43 camps and 32,200+ men under its wing.

We’ve decided to donate AED10 from every single flight booking we make this week. We’re very excited to see how much we can raise and we’re looking forward to presenting Adopt-A-Camp with a very healthy sized cheque at the end of the week.

We’ll be donating from July 15th – July 19th so it’s never been a better time to book with Al Arabi Travel Agency. We recognise that we’re extremely lucky to have a good lifestyle in a wonderful city and we’re extremely proud to be helping out those who don’t have quite as much luck as us.
