UAE: Dubai's Arjaan By Rotana Hosts Iftar, Millennium & Copthorne Launches New Riyadh hotel

Arjaan by Rotana hosted an iftar gathering for the students of the Special Needs Future Development Center (SNF) and their family members.

Over 40 students and parents enjoyed breaking their fast at the hotel property located in Dubai Media City.

Our association with SNF and the team goes a long way, and we are delighted that we can express our support for their inspiring work during this holy month. The teachers, parents and other family members of children with special needs play a crucial role in helping them adapt to the society and prove themselves.

This Iftar, along with participating in a solemn ritual of Ramadan, was our way of thanking SNF for their tireless efforts and giving students an opportunity to spend quality time with their family. said Arjaan by Rotana general manager Ayman Ashor.

For over ten years, SNF in Dubai has dedicated itself towards empowering young adults with special needs and imparting necessary skills to enter the workforce and achieve self-sufficiency. The Center offers personalised and professional support to students above the age of fourteen years.
