Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort and Make-A-Wish UAE join forces to support children in need during Ramadan


Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort, Jumeirah Group’s beachfront property in Abu Dhabi, is offering its guests the chance to make a difference to children across the region over the month of Ramadan by simply tucking into the widely-loved culinary classic – hummus. The hotel has work with Make-A-Wish® UAE, to launch its ‘Hummus for Hope’, supporting the foundation’s efforts to grant magical wishes to enrich the lives of children with critical illnesses.

As guests savour the regional favourite, in Tean alongside its succulent grilled spiced meats and seafood dishes served in traditional Levantine style, and through the in-room-dining offering, they can also delight in the knowledge that the proceeds of every hummus ordered a-la-carte will go towards a gift fund shared at the end of the month with Make a Wish Foundation. This gifting effort will offer great and much needed assistance to the foundation’s activities, all of which are designed to bring a smile to the faces of sick children and enhance their quality of life.

Savino Leone, General Manager at Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort says, “Taking our strong community focus a step further, we wanted to embrace the spirit of giving this Ramadan, through our support to The Make-A-Wish® UAE. Children are our future and working together, we can help to enrich the lives of children with critical illnesses in the region. Through the ‘Hummus for Hope’ initiative, we are extending the opportunity for our guests to be a part of this worthwhile outreach to help those in need this Ramadan.”

Mr. Hani Al Zubaidi Make-A-Wish Foundation UAE – CEO says: “We’re proud to continue support from our partnership at Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort during the Holy Month of Ramadan to be able to grant the wishes of children across the UAE
