Dubai, UAE, April 20, 2016: Employees and customers of Wasl showcased their commitment to society by donating blood at a mobile unit located at Wasl’s corporate office on April 19th. The initiative was launched in-line with the Dubai Health Authority’s “Be the 1” Campaign which is promoted by global ambassador and football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. The campaign saw Wasl’s employees and customers lining up to do their part from 9AM through to 1PM, with the aim to use their resources towards the wellness of their community.
“When we give blood, we connect with another human being on a community-level,” said Zainab Mohammed, Chief Property Management & Marketing Officer at Wasl, a subsidiary of Wasl.
“This year’s blood donation drive plays a crucial role in the care and maintenance of the health of Dubai’s residents through ensuring readily available stocks of blood supply to Dubai’s hospitals and clinics. Wasl considers itself to be part of the fabric of Dubai’s society, so we were honoured to be able to support their noble function with our blood donor campaign,” she added. “We are extremely grateful to our employees and customers who selflessly donated blood and helped make our campaign a successful one. They can take pride in the fact that they have helped to save lives and form a human connection with others.”
