Driven by its commitment to contribute to a strong humanitarian society, the K 108 Hotel has presented a donation of QAR 250,000 to Reach out To Asia, Qatar’s pioneering not-for-profit educational organization.

K108, which opened in March in the Old Al Ghanim area of Doha, is a concept hotel that gives all of its profits to charity. The hotel gives homage to the late father of its owner, Yousef Hussein Kamal, the former Minister of Economy and Finance, who inherited the land where the hotel is situated.

Maher Marius Abbouchy, Chief Operating Officer of Diafah Investment, the company managing K 108 hotel said, “We are dedicated to supporting the Qatari community and recognizing the efforts demonstrated by organisations helping the less privileged. Moreover, developing human capital through education or social care; is a central component of K108 values as we strongly believe that this is an integral part of our commitment towards the community.”

Giving back to the community and supporting social and charitable organisations making a real difference to those in need, is a matter of utmost importance for the Hotel, said Abbouchy. “We look forward to work more closely with ROTA in the near future”, he added.

For his part, Mr. Essa al Mannai, ROTA Executive Director said, “We are indebted to K108 Hotel for their generous donation. The entire donation will go directly to delivering projects in underprivileged communities and will make a real difference to so many people. Through our projects in Asia and the Middle East, we can enable people to get back in to schools, improving not just their own lives but the lives of their families.”
