Stock The Ramadan Fridge at Media One Hotel

Media One Hotel’s Ramadan-sharing fridge will return for the sixth year in a row. Positioned just outside the office entrance, each day it’s restocked with food and drink supplied by the tower’s tenants to provide essentials for those in need. This includes fresh fruit, such as apples, oranges, and bananas as well as drinks, including small bottles of water and soft drinks, in keeping with the Dubai Municipality guidelines. Dry fruit, yoghurt, and biscuits in sealed packaging are also welcome. Do note, that cooked food cannot be stocked due to the Dubai Municipality regulations. And finally, in keeping with the property’s sustainability initiative, try to eliminate or at least limit, single-use plastic containers and utensils. Contributions of any size are welcome and can be arranged by calling 052 670 6651.
