(MENAFN- Gulf Times) Al Meera Consumer Goods Company, in collaboration with Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC)'s Blood Donor Unit, organised a successful blood donation campaign at the company headquarters a few days ago.
The drive is in line with Al Meera's commitment to Qatar's communities as part of its corporate social responsibility programme, helping ensure a secure blood supply in Qatar's hospitals, Al Meera has said in a statement, adding that the 'success came due to the company's tradition of working with partner organisations such as HMC, which undertake this responsibility with diligence.
The campaign saw a positive response from Al Meera staff, who were more than happy to participate in a humanitarian cause that helps patients in need on their journey to recovery.
'The blood donation drive is testament to our commitment to Qatar's communities and individuals. We are delighted at the altruism and overwhelming response from our staff, along with our neighbours, who were more than eager to help and donate, said Salah al-Hammadi, Al Meera's deputy CEO. 'At Al Meera, we believe that such initiatives raise public awareness of the importance of donating blood, not only because it may save lives, but also on the health benefits to the donors themselves.
In addition, al-Hammadi invited all members of the community and leading corporations to support HMC in its blood drives as this adheres to the spirit of Qatar National Vision 2030.
The blood drive is part of Al Meera's continuous support of health initiatives in Qatar, which saw similar campaigns run by the company in recent years, such as ‘Action on Diabetes' that was held in several Al Meera branches, and a cancer awareness campaign in collaboration at Rumailah Hospital.
