 ‘Donate Blood – Save Life’ campaign sends important message of awareness



 Zulekha Hospital Sharjah and the Ministry of Health have hailed their latest blood donation drive as major success, with scores of UAE residents contributing to the “Donate Blood, Save Life” initiative this week.


Held in collaboration with the Sharjah Blood Transfusion and Research Centre at the Ministry of Health, the five-hour long campaign gathered a total of 42  donations from members of the local community and hospital employees, who were taken care of at one of four separate stations set up in a purpose equipped blood donation bus at the hospital.


Mr Taher Shams, Managing Director of Zulekha Hospital said:  “This campaign sends a powerful message regarding the importance of blood donation. Such a simple, quick procedure can save so many lives.  Our aim is to hold this campaign every year in order to spread awareness and encourage people to donate when they can.”


Dr. Mariam Adel Labib Younan, Clinical and Chemical Pathologist at Zulekha Hospital Sharjah said: “Blood donation is a very safe and good deed. I have donated today and we encourage everyone to take part if they have the opportunity to do so.


“The blood collected is donated to the Sharjah Blood Transfusion and Research Centre for future requirements by individuals in need. We are grateful to the Ministry of Health for their support of this remarkable initiative.”


Sharing his experience, Safety Officer Geevas Moncy said, “I get a good feeling when I donate blood, it makes me feel proud and I donate every year to be able to save at least one life” 


The ‘Donate Blood. Save Life’ campaign is one of many community-orientated initiatives led by Zulekha Hospital.  It aims to serve the noble cause of saving lives as well to reinforce the spirit of humanitarian voluntary work in the minds of its employees, patients, associates and local communities.


Volunteers were invited to donate blood in the blood donation bus, equipped with state-of-the-art healthcare facilities that ensure hygienic and safe conditions under the hospital’s and Ministry of Health’s expert staff supervision.


As one of the forerunners in UAE healthcare, serving both local and international communities, Zulekha Hospital understands the ongoing demand for blood, proportionate to the fast growing population of the Emirates.
