Ezdan Real Estate Company, an Ezdan Holding Group subsidiary, has organized a blood donation campaign throughout the 1st and 2nd of November 2016. The Campaign, which stems from social responsibility values the Group strives to instil in the community, has witnessed the participation of more than 120 blood donors, including tenants of its residential villages and employees of the Group and its subsidiaries.
During the first day, the campaign’s activities kicked off with a Mobile Blood Donor Unit being dispatched in front of Sakin Center, Ezdan Village (9) in Al Wakrah. The mobile unit then moved, during the following day, to Ezdan Towers in the West Bay area. Hamad Medical Corporation’s (HMC) Blood Donor Centre has allocated a dedicated team to oversee donors’ registration, and to conduct necessary tests and procedures to ensure their fitness to donate blood. Donors also received healthy meals comprising fruits, vegetables and fresh juices.
Ezdan Hotels Company, a subsidiary of Ezdan Holding Group, was also involved in the drive and provided all means of support needed to make the blood donation campaign a success, offering logistical support by dedicating a convenient space for the Mobile Blood Donor Unit setting, and organizing donors’ activities.
For his part, Ezdan Real Estate Acting General Manager Mr. Omar Al-Yafey expressed his gratitude to HMC for its contribution to the successful delivery of this initiative, through the provision of all necessary medical equipment and requirements for the campaign. Al-Yafey, also thanked everyone who participated in the blood donation drive, whether they were tenants or employees, and praised their overwhelming response and active contribution, which expressively reflects the community’s great and acute awareness of the importance of humanitarian and charity work within the community.
He added that Ezdan Real Estate Company has always contributed in stimulating the community participation values adopted by the Group, through spreading awareness on the importance and necessity of solidarity in all humanitarian endeavours. Such activities can be either to save lives of others or spread environmental awareness and organize community activities to promote these values. Al Yafey pointed out that the company has always been keen to host and support experts, scholars and enthusiasts in various fields that help raise awareness among people. He confirmed that the campaign is a prequel to wide range community activities in multiple humanitarian and social fields to be held in the future.
It is worth mentioning that HMC’s Blood Donor Centre has expressed gratitude to Ezdan Real Estate Company through a certificate of appreciation, a tribute presented to the Company in recognition for its efforts in serving the community and promoting charitable and humanitarian values.
