Dubai, June 29, 2020: A blood donation drive was conducted by KSCC at the Al Wasl Club Stadium on Friday, June 26.
The blood donation drive started around 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm as per the schedule provided by the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) Blood Donation Centre. Over 60 people donated blood to support the blood bank. The drive was well organised by maintaining social distance in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
As blood cannot be produced but only can be donated, this drive will help many patients in need of blood during emergencies. Donors felt proud and happy at the thought that they were contributing to saving lives.
The staff at the DHA Blood Donation Centre carried out the screening and undertook the task of testing done in a good manner. They made sure the social distancing was followed amid the coronavirus pandemic. Volunteers of KSCC were also helping the staff to keep people at a safe distance and to make this drive a success.
KSCC manager Mohammad Shafi and other office bearers were present at the event venue. KSCC thanked the volunteers, Community Development of Authority (CDA), Dubai Health Authority (DHA), Blood Donation Centre, Government of Dubai and Al Wasl Club Stadium for making the event successful.
