Commenting on the donation received from K108, Ali Alsobai, Representative of Education Above All, said: “We commend K108 on their unique and admirable mission and on being the hotel whose profits all go to charity. We are thankful to K108 for their contribution to EAC, and are pleased to see it join the growing number of organisations in Qatar who are partnering and supporting the work of EAA and its programmes. EAC aims to provide quality primary education to 10 million out of school children by 2016, and financial contributions are vital to ensuring we reach our target”.

One of the best luxury boutique hotels in Doha - K108 Hotel opened in March 2012 and aims to give 100 percent of its profits to charity. The K108 is a legacy for H.E Yousuf Kamal’s father Hussain Kamal, whose vision and ethics for life have always motivated him to help the needy.

Christoph Franzen, K108 Representative said:

“H.E Yousuf Kamal is certainly following the legacy of his father and contributing to the society at his best. It is always said that giving is the best joy that one can receive; K108 is proudly thriving on the same.”
