Blood Donation Drive in Downtown Dubai
Did you know that one pint of blood can help save up to three lives? Based on this fact, a week-long blood donation drive was organised in Downtown Dubai between 18 and 22 October to encourage residents to lend a hand and donate.
This initiative by Emaar Community Management was held in association with Dubai Health Authority and the Government of Dubai across six locations in Boulevard Central, 29 Boulevard, The Residences, Old Town Residences A, Burj Views, 8 Boulevard Walk, Claren, Old Town Island, The Lofts, Standpoint, Old Town Residences B and South Ridge.
More than 170 donors registered for donation, including residents, service providers, passers-by and even retail staff in the vicinity. The drive received a welcome response as many saw it as an opportunity to pay it forward to those in need in crucial times.
