DHA Organizes Blood Donation Drive

The Dubai Health Authority’s (’s) human resources (HR) section recently organized a blood donation drive at the headquarters to encourage employees to come forward and become regular donors.

The drive was organized in collaboration with the Al Wasl Blood Donation Centre and the centre collected 65 units of blood by the end of the day-long donation drive. Dr Amer Ahmad Sharif, director of HR at the DHA, emphasized on the importance of holding such blood donation drives to cater to Dubai’s ever-increasing demand for blood. Dr Sharif was the first one to donate blood and begun the donation drive. He encouraged the blood donation centre to organize such mobile blood donation drives in work places so that it becomes convenient for people to donate blood. “Donating blood does not take more than half an hour and it is a noble deed because it saves lives,” he said. Dr Rena Saheb, head of the medical unit at Al Wasl Blood Donation Centre said that the centre categorizes the whole blood collected into four different parts – red blood cells, plasma, platelets and cryoprecipitate (CPP) and each part has a specific medical purpose. She also encouraged employees to register themselves with the centre so that when a particular blood type is required the centre can refer to their database and contact donors.
