Dunia had organized several blood drives in the past, as well as other events to support causes such as charity, cancer awareness, and literacy, as part of its ‘dunia cares’ program aimed at making a difference in people’s lives,
“We do this because we truly feel that as a part of this community, it is our responsibility to help each other out. It also happens to be the holy month of Ramadan, and in the spirit of giving that permeates throughout this month, we decided to hold this blood drive and help out the hospitals. I would like to thank all our staff members who will take part in this drive in advance for their generosity, and everyone else who will take the time and effort to come down to our offices and participate,”
said dunia’s Executive Director and CEO Mr. Rajeev Kakar.
Nadia Kalantar, Head of Marketing at the Al Wasl’s Blood Donor Recruitment Unit, said supply had been scarce lately, “We typically require 150-200 units of blood every day, and we have been struggling this month. This campaign is the first large blood drive we have held this Ramadan, and a continuation of our collaboration with dunia in these events”, she added.
The Drive will take place at dunia offices in Dubai located at the Dubai Outsource Zone, Bldg. 6, 2nd floor from 10am to 3pm.
