DOHA, Qatar (November 17, 2013) – In collaboration with Qatar Diabetes Association, Wyndham Grand Regency Doha recently celebrated World Diabetes Day a global event that unites millions of people around the world to raise awareness of diabetes.
To mark this day, celebrated every November 14, the hotel’s lobby was decorated with blue flowers and the hotel facade glowed in blue, a color that is associated with the worldwide event and diabetes awareness. In addition, employees and associates from both establishments joined together by wearing a pin representing the World Diabetes Day logo, a blue circle, to express their support for people with diabetes and those who are working to raise awareness and prevent the disease.
“At Wyndham Grand Regency Doha, World Diabetes Day is one of the leading awareness activities that we encourage our employees to participate in through our ‘Count On Me!’ initiative, by which we pledge to be responsive, respectful and deliver great experiences. It is important for us to take action to better understand diabetes and support world initiatives for this noble cause,” said Ayman Lotfy, the hotel’s general manager.
“This is one of the ways we give back to our local community, which we care deeply about,” added Lotfy. “I send my heartfelt thanks to each and every individual who helped make this event a success.”
World Diabetes Day is celebrated every year on November 14. The World Diabetes Day campaign is led by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and its member associations. It engages millions of people worldwide in diabetes advocacy and awareness. World Diabetes Day was created in 1991 by the International Diabetes Federation and the World Health Organization in response to growing concerns about the escalating health threat that diabetes now poses. Numerous local and national events are organised by organisations and individuals with an interest in diabetes. For more information, visit www.idf.org/worlddiabetesday.
