KSCC holds Blood Donation Campaign at Al Ghubaiba
Dubai: The Karnataka Sports and Cultural Club (KSCC) in association with Dubai Heath Authority (DHA) and Community Development Authority (CDA) conducted a Blood Donation Campaign at Al Ghubaiba metro station.
The campaign was inaugurated at 9 am by KSCC president, Ashraf Hassan. With four registration counters, there were six volunteer groups to highlight the public on the awareness, necessity and benefits of blood donation.
Volunteers, with their enthusiastic and competent approach, promoted their noble cause at the exit/entry doors of Al Ghubaiba Metro station, Bus station, Carrefour and traffic signals. From 9 am to 1 pm, there was an unprecedented queue to participate in the blood donation.
The very good positive response from the community exceeded expectations as about hundred plus donors had registered, despite waiting in a long queue. The systematic arrangements, efforts, and encouragement shown by the DHA to collect blood from the donors was the most appreciable.
Complimentary cups and caps, snacks and soft drinks were distributed to the donors. Pamphlets signifying the importance and benefits of blood donation were also distributed.
At the concluding speech, the Club Manager Mohammad Shafi said, “The Blood Donation Campaign received a remarkable response from the public which is highly commendable and we are very glad to have served the community by collaborating with Dubai Health Authority and Community Development Authority.”
