Mövenpick Hotel & Resort Al Bida’a Kuwait organises blood donation campaign
The blood donation drive was done in cooperation with the Kuwait Central Blood Bank (KCBB)
Kuwait, 28th June 2012: Staff from Mövenpick Hotel & Resort Al Bida’a Kuwait saved countless lives– although they will never know who they helped.
More than 40 staff took time from their daily routines to each donate a unit of
blood to the Kuwait Central Blood Bank (KCBB), which came collecting at the
luxury beachside resort.
Mr. Ali Al Mahraa, the Public Relations Manager at the KCBB explained that blood is always in need in Kuwait and stated that she is pleased with the awareness and generosity of both Kuwaitis and expatriates in the country. He warned, however, that there is a high turnover of all types of blood and that stocks must be constantly replenished.
Many of the hotel staff expressed an interest in donating blood, from back of the house to the Executive Office.
Mr. Ramzi Shaban, Executive Assistant Manager at Mövenpick Hotel & Resort Al Bida’a, led from the front by donating blood.“Corporate social responsibility takes many forms and donating blood is a simple and valuable way of contributing to our community,” Ramzi Said.
“From a personal standpoint, any one of us could need a transfusion at any
Time, it’s great to know that we are all giving to save lives – even if we will
never know who we helped, ” he added.
