Doha Bank recently held a blood donation drive at its headquarters in West Bay as part of its corporate social responsibilities. The initiative was organised in partnership with the Blood Donor Centre of Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) to support HMC’s nationwide campaign to encourage citizens and residents to become regular blood donors.
The blood donation drive was well-received with approximately 60 donors, which included bank staff and customers, who actively took part while observing regulatory Covid-19 protocols.
Doha Bank CEO Dr R Seetharaman said, “We applaud our employees who spearheaded this initiative and who stepped up to donate their blood and save lives. While this initiative serves a vital social cause and provides a lifeline when needed, donating blood has various health benefits, such as detoxing and replenishing one’s blood. We at Doha Bank will continue to contribute towards Qatar’s well-being through various such initiatives.”
In a statement, Doha Bank said it is encouraging people to visit the Blood Donor Centre at the HMC complex near the Shura Council.
