ibis Styles Accra Airport City Hotel is a brand under the Accor group of Hotels whose mission is to create a meaningful experience for the community of travelers and new nomads all around the globe but transcends to supporting projects and programs that creates a meaningful future for children and also as a responsibility to give back to society.
Most importantly, IBIS celebrates Christmas with Oafrica’s beneficiaries in community based foster care to climax IBIS SOLIDARITY WEEK celebration and also as part of OAfrica 15 years on Saturday 16th December, 2017.
Speaking at the event the CEO, Mr. Robert M. Dakwa schooled guests on the need for children to grow up in safe and loving families. He mentioned that the leading cause of child abandonment is poverty. Poor families often feel that placing their children into an orphanage is the only way to ensure they receive proper education, food and other essentials. “We don’t agree: we think orphanages are often very abusive and that the best place for a child is in the family in their community.
Madam Erica Alliah, the Deputy Manager of IBIS Style Hotel said it is very important to show love to the under privileged in society especially children at this time and season of the year. She stated that children are the future of the world and there is the need to nature them with love so that the world would be a better place to live in. And with this reason the hotel has decided to celebrate yuletide with the Special Children under OAfrica’s support.
