Blood Donation Campaign

Tuesday, 12 April, 2005

The UOWD Medical Centre (Student Services) in cooperation with the Blood Donation Centre, Al Wasl Hospital, conducted a Blood Donation Campaign on Sunday, April 10, 2005 in UOWD Auditorium.

The turnout for the blood drive was higher than expected with close to 100 staff and students lining up to support this worthy cause. Donors were first asked to provide their medical history and were then examined by the clinic technicians. After giving blood, everyone took time to rest before resuming their duties. It was truly a success and, right up until the last minutes of the campaign, people were coming to donate.

As a result of this encouraging support, the University will endeavour to make this an annual charity event.
