“‘Iftar for Cabs’ represents the spirit of Ramadan and we are extremely proud of our hotels’ teams who come together for this initiative every year and go that extra step to give back to the community,” said Guido de Wilde, Senior Vice President & Regional Director, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Middle East. “This initiative is our way of appreciating the cab drivers who support our hotels throughout the year by providing transportation services to our guests.”

The ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative – ideated by Starwood Hotels & Resorts – has been running since 2010 and has since become an annual tradition for many cab drivers throughout the region. Last year, Starwood delivered over 3,000 Iftar packs to cab drivers across the region.
