KSCC Holds Blood Donation Drive in Dubai
Dubai: Karnataka Sports and Cultural Club (KSCC) organized a Blood Donation Camp at the Latifa Hospital, Oud Mehta Dubai on April 23rd, 2020 in association with Dubai Health Authority (DHA) with the support from Community Development Authority (CDA) Government of Dubai.
The Blood Donation Drive was held from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm. Around 48 persons participated in this drive and donated blood to support the Dubai Blood Bank.
There was a potential shortage of blood due to a significant reduction in voluntary blood donations during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of the current situation, health services are now running short of blood supply. To support the DHA Blood Bank KSCC took the initiative to ensure that blood donations continued and are safe for both the donors and the recipients.
After taking all the safety precautions and ensuring safe distancing 48 persons donated blood. The donors were happy and honoured to participate in the blood donation camp during these difficult times. Club Manager Mohammad Shafi was also present during this event.
KSCC appreciated all the blood donors and thanked the Dubai Health Authority (DHA), Community Development Authority (CDA), and Government of Dubai for their support and co-operation towards the success of blood donation camp.
