Al Ain Properties, in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Blood Bank, has organized a blood donation campaign recently under the slogan “Save a Life Give Blood”.
The one-day campaign was held at Al Ain Tower and the Mangrove Village, two of Company’s prime properties. The campaign attracted most tenants who were invited to donate blood in the mobile vehicles provided by the Abu Dhabi Blood Bank and stationed at the two locations.
Abdul Aziz Hussain Ahmed, CEO of Al Ain Properties, said: “we wanted to join hands with the Abu Dhabi Blood Bank to highlight the importance of this noble initiative, and we could make giving blood easy by reaching out to our tenants at their own residences.’’
“This campaign comes in line with our social commitment to contribute to the safety of the community through enhancing blood donation as a healthy exercise amongst individuals,” Abdul Aziz added.
The campaign resulted in collecting 190 blood units, according to a medical official from Abu Dhabi Blood Bank. It also offered free medical check-up including blood pressure and sugar level, as well as healthy tips.
“I was very excited to participate in this campaign. It was at our door step, which saves time. I would like to thank all involved in this initiative, and I hope it would be repeated regularly,” said one tenant at the Mangrove Village who has been living there for 4 years. “I have never heard of a landlord who organizes such healthy events. I really thank you all,” she added.
