On May 19, and as part of Thuraya’s CSR program, we organized a Blood Donation Drive at our Primary Gateway in Sharjah. The aim of the drive was to contribute to the build-up of blood stock and to create awareness on the importance of donating blood, which is directly correlated to Thuraya’s purpose of ‘saving and improving lives.’
The donation process was managed by a dedicated team from the Blood Transfusion and Research Center in Sharjah which falls under the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention.
More than 25 Thuraya employees of different nationalities volunteered to donate blood, happy to contribute to helping those who are in need of blood transfusions. The lives of patients depend on the timely supply of compatible blood. It is one of the most effective ways to save a life.
The human body replaces donated blood within 24 hours. In fact, donating blood is an extremely healthy way to encourage your body to regenerate new blood on a regular basis.
