International Women’s Day turned out to be an unforgettable day for a group of women concierge and facility management staff members in The Greens & Views. The women were treated to their first-ever five-star lunch by ECM and the community women empowerment group, Women of Worth (WoW), for their exemplary work in the communities. The group was brought to The Palace Downtown’s Ewaan on the pretext of a special duty only to realise that they were the VIPs for the grand meal.
Touched by the gesture, the women were almost in tears and clicked selfies thanking the team for the special celebration, which is part of the many initiatives planned for 2017 – the Year of Giving.
“I am just amazed. I don’t have words”, said Naomi Nduta, a single mother from Kenya. “We really appreciate this. God bless you all. Thank you for appreciating what we do in the community and taking out your valuable time to reward us with a sumptuous five-star buffet in the Palace Hotel Downtown. We appreciate all the gestures with the deepest regard for you all and heartfelt thanks. Thanks once again. Long live EMAAR."
