Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa Reinforces Support for Kuwait Down Syndrome Society

For the second consecutive year, Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa, Kuwait’s idyllic resort, has shown its far-reaching support for the children of the Kuwait Down Syndrome Society. As part of their year long sponsorship, the luxurious landmark sponsored the society's celebrations on the occasion of the National and Liberation Days. General Manager, Hakan Petek, said: “The Kuwait Down Syndrome Society plays a crucial role in so many lives and I applaud their outstanding commitment. A fundamental component of our Social Responsibility culture is to empower and support the local community. It is tremendously rewarding to be part of these initiatives and to be able to contribute to such noble causes.” Greeted by Ms. Hessa Al-Baloula, co-founder of the Kuwait Down Syndrome Society, the Hotel's management team attended the event held under the patronage of Sheikha Sheikha Al-Sabah, a devoted advocate for special needs in Kuwait. The distinguished guests bonded with around 200 children and their families, relatives and members of the community. Children were overjoyed at the occasion and were happy to receive special gifts from the hotel’s management. Carol Roncoletta, Director of PR & Communications, said: “It was a privilege to organise this yearly activity, interact with the children and help support this truly inspirational society. On behalf of Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa, I would like to thank everybody for their significant efforts.” The Kuwait Down Syndrome Society hosts number of workshops and initiatives throughout the year for those with Down syndrome, including arts and crafts and cooking. The activities are meant to empower those with special needs and encourage them to pursue their passions and embolden them to get involved in meaningful community activities.
