Ghanim al Muftah (pictured) is an inspiration the world over. At just 15 years old, this budding entrepreneur, aspirational Para-Olympian and social media success has won the hearts of nearly 1 million followers on Instagram and practically everyone he’s ever met. Suffering from a rare syndrome called Caudal Regression Syndrome, Ghanim has only ever confronted his situation with courage and determination. Although still just a teenager, Ghanim has achieved so much in his lifetime, despite his physical impediments.
Banana Island Resort Doha had the pleasure of hosting Ghanim, inviting him to experience everything the resort has to offer. Welcomed by the resort’s General Manager and team, his time at Banana Island was a well-earned break from running his successful ice cream business as well as his constant social media activity to build awareness around disability.
Ghanim participated in a variety of different activities around the island. From watersports such as surfing, kayaking and taking a banana boat ride, he also went bowling and watched a movie at the resort’s cinema. After enjoying one of several delicious dinners at the resort’s restaurants, Ghanim was even invited into the kitchen to learn how to ice cupcakes!
He and his family were guests at one of Banana Island Resort Doha’s famed villas, where they comfortably spent their days and nights relaxing.
Banana Island Resort Doha was honored to have Ghanim al Muftah and his family as guests and wish him the best of luck in all the adventures he has to come.
