Rixos Premium Dubai Collaborates with Dubai Autism Center to Promote Autism Awareness

The hotel is now the Digital Awareness Partner for the Dubai Autism Center (DAC), aiming to support the centre’s efforts with a series of community initiatives

Rixos Premium Dubai, a stylish urban hotspot in the heart of Dubai’s Jumeirah Beach Residence, is pleased to announce its collaboration with Dubai Autism Center (DAC). The hotel, known for its dedication to supporting communities and fostering a positive impact, will be the Digital Awareness Partner of DAC throughout 2024, aiming to further spread awareness about autism. As part of this collaboration, Rixos Premium Dubai will host various initiatives every month to bring moments of joy to children on the spectrum and their families.

Founded in 2001, DAC is one of the largest nonprofit organisations in the UAE, serving children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. The centre focuses on creating a supportive and inclusive environment where children on the spectrum can thrive, learn, and participate in activities that promote their wellbeing and happiness. Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai, DAC launched its 18th month-long Autism Awareness Campaign coinciding with World Autism Awareness Day celebrated on April 2nd.

Recognising the significance of this worthy cause, Rixos Premium Dubai was delighted to be part of this campaign. The hotel actively engaged in activities and events to support DAC’s campaign, with the highlight being a birthday celebration on April 30th for DAC’s children, providing delicious cakes, and creating a joyful and supportive atmosphere. Rixos Premium Dubai aims to continue spreading awareness about Autism Spectrum Disorders as DAC’s Digital Awareness Partner for 2024, leveraging its digital platforms to amplify the message of autism awareness and inclusion.

Throughout this year, Rixos Premium Dubai will organise monthly initiatives and activities to celebrate inclusivity and community empowerment, which includes hosting birthday celebrations on the 30th of each month. The hotel will further expand these initiatives by hosting entertainment programmes, organising small games, and giving away prizes for the kids, ensuring a fun and enriching experience for everyone involved.

“We are immensely proud to partner with Dubai Autism Center in raising awareness and championing the inclusion and acceptance of individuals with autism,” said Turgay Erdogan, General Manager at Rixos Premium Dubai. “Our commitment to social responsibility drives us to actively contribute to initiatives that make a positive impact on society. We look forward to a fruitful collaboration with DAC and supporting their invaluable work.”

Rixos Premium Dubai stands at the forefront of advocating for inclusivity and understanding within society. The hotel has long been a partner of many organisations that focus on sustainability, social causes, and fostering meaningful change in the community. With its new collaboration with DAC, Rixos Premium Dubai looks forward to expanding its efforts to support children on the spectrum and their families.
