Hundreds of personnel from The St Regis Doha and the Alfardan Group joined forces last night to help make a difference, as part of a global volunteer initiative.

Employees of The St Regis Doha and Alfardan Group gathered to complete a 5 km walk around Katara to raise money for local and international charities. Through the enthusiastic efforts of employees, a generous contribution will be given to the international charity UNICEF and local Qatar charity organisation Reach Out To Asia (ROTA).

The Starwood Cares for the Community Program is a global initiative that supports the efforts of all Starwood and friends of Starwood associates as they engage in meaningful volunteer activities to create a positive difference in their communities.

Tareq Derbas, General Manager of The St Regis Doha, said:

We are very excited to be participating in this global initiative, this is a great opportunity for associates to unite with their colleagues and participate in activities that help make a difference in their community, it fosters company pride and personal enrichment.’
