In line with its corporate social responsibility (CSR) program, Imdaad, a leading provider of integrated facilities and environment solutions in the GCC, recently organised the ‘Imdaad Blood Donation Campaign’ within the premises of its Jebel Ali Headquarters. Held under the theme ‘1 Pint of Blood Can Save 3 Lives. Give the Gift of Life, Donate Blood,’ the event drew a large number of employees, including senior management, to donate blood which was turned over to Latifa Hospital in Dubai.
The Imdaad Blood Donation Campaign complements the company’s CSR activities that promotes responsive civic and social duties with the objective of giving back to society in a meaningful manner. The drive is also intended to raise awareness on the importance of regular blood donation among employees because of blood’s shelf life of only 42 days under refrigeration. The donated blood is mostly used for thalassaemia patients as well as cases of open-heart surgeries, maternity health complications, and road accidents, among others.
Jamal Abdullah Lootah, CEO, Imdaad, said: “Imdaad has a highly active CSR division which has organised programs as well as supported several initiatives to contribute to the betterment of society. The recently held ‘Imdaad Blood Donation Campaign’ was organized on similar lines to collect healthy blood for eventual use in times of emergencies for saving lives. We are overwhelmed by the huge response received from all our departments and thank them for making the campaign a great success. The campaign also raised awareness about blood donation as a healthy exercise and encouraged our employees to donate blood on a regular basis.”
