The Westin Dragonara Resort`s Front Office Shift Leader, Aaron Axisa has successfully participated in this year`s `Road to Awareness` associate fundraising campaign to support UNICEF`s work for children in Somalia. Aaron cycled through 355km of the French and Swiss Alps battling wind, rain and steep hills between the 27th and 29th of August all in the name of a good cause.
Aaron managed to collect £1374.64 which have been donated to UNICEF in order to reach 2.1 million people living in poverty in urban and rural areas of Somalia with sustainable access to safe water and sanitation by 2015.
UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation for children, working in over 190 countries.
The ‘Road to Awareness’ associate fundraising campaign has been making a positive difference to children in the communities Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc operates in since 2008. Last year’s campaign was a huge success, meaning over 8,000 excluded children in Cameroon and Nigeria will be enrolled in school and earn their right to an education.
In 2014, Starwood Hotels & Resorts EAME aims to tie in with last year`s success, pursuing to raise over USD$600,000 to support UNICEF`s work for children in Somalia to which Aaron Axisa contributed by his amazing and admirable cycling performance.
