The charity flea market held recently at Sheraton Abu Dhabi Hotel & Resort proved to be another success

story raising AED 23.500 for the hotel’s charity fund for UNICEF. The event showcased 90 private exhibitors

selling pre-loved items from their homes and welcomed hundreds of visitors looking for the best bargains.

Funds collected from the sale of the exhibitor tables will support UNICEF’s WASH projects providing clean

drinking water and proper sanitation facilities for children and their families across Africa and the Middle East.

This year UNICEF and Sheraton Abu Dhabi’s parent company, Starwood Hotels & Resorts are celebrating 20

years of partnership. Since 1995, Starwood have supported UNICEF projects in more than 40 countries across

the world with $30 million of funds raised. UNICEF works in more than 100 countries around the world to

improve water supplies and sanitation facilities in schools and communities, and to promote safe hygiene


Yves Tarabout, who is Acting General Manager of the hotel, is delighted by the event’s success. “We were

thrilled to be running our last charity market in aid of UNICEF. Knowing that the money we raised will be used to

improve the lives of vulnerable children throughout Africa and the Middle East, is tremendously rewarding. I

would like to thank all our exhibitors – many of them returning to us for years – for their continued support and

contribution to this very worthy cause. I am also very proud of my associates who donated their free time to

ensure that the charity bazaar is a fun day out for our visitors.”
