Al Hassan organizes Blood donation drive (01 Oct 2013)
As part of its ongoing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, the Al Hassan Group recently organized a blood donation drive at the head office in Muscat in collaboration with the Central Blood Bank of Oman (CBB).The initiative witnessed enthusiastic participation from many of the employees in a two day period. At Al Hassan the blood donation drive is organized periodically in support of the Ministry of Health's charitable initiatives.
On the occasion, Mr. Maqbool Ali Salman, MD, Al Hassan Group expressed his gratitude to all the volunteers and said, "We recognize that blood donation is the responsibility of every healthy individual and is considered a noble and valuable service. This camp is a matter of pride for us and I thank the blood donors for their precious support in this noble act as the blood donated by them may save many lives."
Organized under the supervision of the Head of Administration, a team from the CBB set up a camp at the office premises to conduct the blood donation drive. Each candidate underwent a preliminary health screening prior to donation to ensure that the blood collected is free from any infections.
The Al Hassan Group of Companies has always been committed to the cause of giving back to the community through meaningful initiatives. The Blood Donation drive is one such activity under our CSR programme which is organized on a periodic basis to create a culture of 'giving back'.
