Sharjah: Sharjah Media City (Shams) has organised a blood donation campaign at its headquarters today, as part of its social responsibility activities and to mark World Blood Donor Day, which is celebrated this month.
People from all segments of the community, as well as 50 members of the Shams team, joined the initiative to donate blood and benefit those in need. H.E. Dr. Khalid Omar Al Midfa, Chairman of Sharjah Media City (Shams), and H.E. Shihab Alhammadi, Director of Shams, also attended the campaign events, along with other high-ranking Shams officials.
The campaign was organised in collaboration with the Blood Transfusion and Research Centre, an affiliate of the Emirates Health Services Establishment.
H.E. Dr Khalid Omar Al Midfa said: “Donating blood is perhaps the most important kind of donation a person can make – it can, very literally, save lives. At Shams, we are committed to supporting every segment of our community, and it is particularly critical to help those in need of medical assistance, who need more than just our material support.”
“It is heart-warming to see the significant turnout from the public and from our own team to donate blood,” H.E. continued. “This embodies the UAE’s values of solidarity and compassion, and supports efforts to ensure the health and wellbeing of the entire community. It shows that we are truly one family here in the Emirate of Sharjah.”
H.E. Al Midfa reiterated Shams’ commitment to expanding its social responsibility activities, and to engaging its growing business sector in the community development efforts transforming the Emirate of Sharjah and the UAE.
