UNICEF in Action with WASH Project:

PROVIDING CLEAN DRINKING WATER AND PROPER SANITATION FACILITIES FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES ACROSS AFRICA AND THE MIDDLE EAST.

As we are aware that dirty water, poor sanitation, and unhygienic practices cause millions of children to suffer needlessly from disease. Despite being preventable, water and sanitation related diseases remain one of the most significant child health problems worldwide. Almost 750 million people lack access to safe drinking water and an estimated 2.5 billion people lack access to proper sanitation facilities.

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 practices. In emergency situations, UNICEF also provides urgent relief to communities and nations threatened by disrupted water supplies and disease.

In line to the great initiative this Charity Gala Dinner supported “Road To Awareness”, which is a worldwide fundraising initiative taken by Starwood Hotels & Resorts to support the underprivileged children by means of UNICEF. This year, the money raised will also support with much-needed fund to UNICEF Wash project across Middle East and Africa providing clean drinking water. The Middle East and North Africa is the most water-scarce region in the world, and two out of five people without access to safe drinking water live in Africa.

DSC_0234What comes to the table indeed has marked the first finest impression on the guests it was Scottish Salmon halibut smoked with soft radish jelly, and mushy peas form. Where the dish kept all its softness it did not disappoint us in it’s crunchy element. It was served with Vegetable Chip and made a perfect entrée’.

Then arrive the Roast Irish beef , the main along with yorkshire pudding with ‘bangers’ onion gravy and root veggies.

We thoroughly enjoyed the dessert which is sticky toffee pudding, with stilton crumble and apple cider sorbet, its divine and was the highlight of whole menu.

Last but not the least was assorted cheese platter with crackers and jams, it came late where all guests were busy in bidding and auction however we were so full that we dint opt for it.
