Making a splash in Abu Dhabi

Shangri-La Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi

The Special Care Centre (SCC) is an accredited organisation that is registered with the Ministry of Social Affairs as an establishment for the care and rehabilitation of disabled people. It is a non-profit organisation that relies heavily on donations and volunteers.  

As a partner of this organisation, we show our support to them through a number of activities, including conducting swimming lessons for their students with mental disabilities, carrying out Fire, Life and Safety inspections in their centre, hosting their Fun Day, attending their Sports Day and Talent Show and lastly, inviting the children to attend the Hotel Christmas Tree lighting ceremony in December. 

We have hired Avinash Mohan, a former student of SCC’s senior class, as a full-time employee in the Housekeeping department since June 2013. Another student, Thea Cuenco, is currently undergoing a two-month training programme in the Human Resources department. The hotel is looking at the possibility of hiring her in the Hotel as a full-time employee, just like Avinash.
