Throughout the global pandemic and widespread devastation, Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa and Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa have supported Dar Al Atta’a, the resorts’ official EMBRACE beneficiary that supports anyone from low-income backgrounds in the Sultanate of Oman.
During these challenging times, and with the series of unpaid leaves and furloughs hitting the entire community, Dar Al Atta’a has worked to support the affected families and individuals in Oman. Throughout this period of hardship, five volunteers were in charge of processing thousands of cases in Oman. After much hard work, the five volunteers extended support to cover living expenses of 7,500 underprivileged families and individuals.
As a token of appreciation, Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa extended five complimentary vouchers to each volunteer. Each voucher redeems a weekend retreat to experience a memorable getaway once the resort is open.
Along with extending thanks to volunteers, in June 2020, the resorts donated clothing and over 3,700 pieces of discarded linen to Dar Al Atta’a, which will be donated to community members in need or repurposed.
Thank you to both of our resorts in Oman as well as the hardworking staff at Dar Al Atta’a for helping the Omani community.
