Abu Dhabi Systems and Information Centre hosts blood drive
Abu Dhabi: Abu Dhabi Systems and Information Centre (ADSIC) partnered with Sheikh Khalifa Medical City to promote blood donation and, ultimately, help save the lives of patients throughout the United Arab Emirates.
In addition to an internal campaign, put in place to educate employees on the importance of voluntary blood donation, ADSIC invited staff to visit the Mobile Blood Bank and make a contribution to Abu Dhabi’s Blood Bank.
Senior officials and employees from different departments showed up in droves to support the company’s initiative. Many mentioned the campaign was important to raise awareness on the importance of constant blood donation, as not everyone knows that blood can only be stored for a limited period of time before use. It also helped minimize fears by thoroughly explaining that centers make use of new, disposable and sterilized equipment, and test all blood products for a number of infectious diseases before it is actually donated to patients.
Those inspired by ADSIC’s employees can contact the Abu Dhabi Blood Bank on +971 2 819 1700 for inquiries on how and where to donate blood.
