Dubai, UAE, June 14, 2015: Employees of Wasl provided vital support to Dubai Blood Donation Centre yesterday in conjunction with the World Blood Donor Day, which is marked on June 14 of every year. Team members from Dubai’s leading property development and management company, attended the centre to give blood, which it will use to help save lives for citizens, residents and visitors in the emirate.
“We are aware of the important role that Dubai Blood Donation Centre plays for the emirate and its responsibility for ensuring a ready stock of blood to supply Dubai’s hospitals and medical centres - the facility is an essential one for the community. 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,” said Zainab Mohamed, CEO Property Management and Marketing, Wasl, a subsidiary of Wasl.
Wasl’s blood donation drive involved the company transporting employees who wished to be involved from its various departments - as well as customers who were in its office at the time - to the centre, which is a subsidiary of Dubai Health Authority. The initiative was the latest in Wasl’s annual programme of CSR initiatives aimed at benefitting all aspects of society.
“We are extremely grateful to our employees, as well as our 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 have contributed to a vital service for the emirate,” added Zainab.
