The Ministry of Health recently concluded a blood donation activity at the Radisson Blu Hotel Muscat. The hotel is a regular contributor to the Ministry’s Department of Blood Services and has hosted numerous such drives so far.

Employees took time out from their busy work schedules at the hotel to contribute to the blood camp. The deputed blood bank team collected information and screened viable donors. The doctor from the medical team on location emphasised how vital blood donation was for use in accidents and emergency situations. He commended the donors for their efforts and enthusiasm to get involved.

One of the employees mentioned, “This was the fourth consecutive year that he was donating blood. When asked what his motive was he replied that “blood is not a commodity that can be manufactured so if we as human beings don’t provide this resource to each other, there is no other way to obtain it.”

Blood donation is one of the many activities undertaken by the Radisson Blu Hotel, Muscat as part of ‘Responsible Business’ planned projects throughout the year. The Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group to which the hotel brand belongs, encourages and supports the individual Rezidor Hotels to be very active in their respective local communities. The Radisson Blu Hotel, Muscat has set its own personal benchmark in Oman by planning and executing a calendar of ‘Responsible Business’ activities throughout the year.

“Being a regular part of the blood donation drive is a simple and yet effective way to get involved in the local community. The activity falls under the category of ‘Think Together’ – one of the three pillars of the ‘Responsible Business’ program which is about respecting social and ethical issues in the company and the community,” said Madkour Hamad, Chief Engineer and Responsible Business Coordinator at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Muscat.
