First Central Hotel Apartments saves 117 lives with Blood Donation Campaign
Hotel Staff and Guests join the initiative to “Give Blood and Save Lives”.
Dubai, UAE (August 02, 2016) – In association with the Dubai Health Authority, First Central has setup a blood donation campaign as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives.
Operating under the slogan “Give Blood and Save Lives” the campaign sought to promote voluntary blood donations from the Hotel Staff and its guests at the make-shift blood donation camp which was setup at the hotel’s Rooftop Restaurant.
With the goal of collecting at least 35 units of blood, the event attracted 52 potential donors, out of which 39 were qualified. In general, each single donor benefits three patients.
It was vital that the donors understood the importance of the program and that blood donations help save millions of lives every year. It can help patients tackle life-threatening conditions to live longer and with higher quality of life, and also supports intricate medical and surgical procedures.
Mr. Wael El Behi, General Manager said: “First Central has partnered with the Dubai Health Authority to make this Blood Donation campaign possible. As part of our corporate social responsibility, it is heartwarming to see a good turnout for this initiative. Our associates and guests’ participation has helped us collect more than 17 liters of blood and save 117 lives during this blood drive.”
First Central Hotel Apartments have laid down plans to continue this campaign for the future, with the next blood drive aiming to attract more donors and participants.
