Qatar Cool responds to Qatar’s medical requirements
Leading district cooling company, Qatar Cool, contributed to the 100 medical units of blood required by Qatar daily with a donation drive at its Plant 1 head office in West Bay.
Qatar Cool General Manager Mr Fayad Al Khatib led by example, himself donating blood in a donation drive that was organised in cooperation with Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC).
Qatar Cool employees and management, and staff from two subsidiary companies, i2i Qatar and Cooltech, took part in the drive.
Mr Al Khatib said: “Blood is essential for the treatment of many illnesses and conditions, particularly in the case of accidents and emergencies. HMC needs to collect an average of 100 medical units every day to meet the need in Qatar. Here at Qatar Cool we see it as our duty to take part in activities that will benefit our community and the whole of Qatar. Whether it is donating blood or ensuring we use 40 to 60 percent less energy to produce our final product, the community and their environment is our priority.”
Qatar Cool Business Development Manager Mohannad Khader said that staff enthusiastically took part in the blood drive, an activity that will now take place every six months. Mr. Khader added that the blood drive was one of a series of corporate social responsibility activities planned by Qatar Cool as part of its mission to support the growth and development of Qatar with community-minded, environmentally-friendly and innovative technology.
