Ooredoo has held two blood donation drives to encourage employees to support the local community. The events attracted a large number of eligible Ooredoo employees who donated blood to help patients at local clinics and hospitals.
The blood drives, which are annual commitments for Ooredoo, were held at the telecoms leader’s two headquarters on September 5 and 10, and were arranged in partnership with Hamad Medical Centre’s Blood Donation Centre.
HMC visited both Ooredoo’s headquarters in West Bay and Airport Road with the necessary facilities and equipment to collect blood onsite, making donation quick and easy for Ooredoo employees.
Manar Khalifa al-Muraikhi, director, PR and Corporate Communications at Ooredoo, said: “At Ooredoo, supporting our local communities is a key focus of our corporate social responsibility strategy. We recognise our humanitarian responsibilities as a leading Qatari company, and we are fully-committed to finding as many ways as possible to participate in initiatives that benefit those in the community in need of our help. We’re proud to see so many of our employees who were able to donate blood, and we’re grateful to Hamad Medical Centre for making the blood drives possible.”
