Blood Donation Drive


As part of our commitment to support social causes, DIFC is partnering with Dubai Health to organise a Blood Donation Drive at The Atrium, Gate District, DIFC.

This initiative is an opportunity for us to come together and make a meaningful impact.

Tuesday 5 March 2024 09:00am - 03:00pm

In line with “Dubai Paperless Strategy”, it is mandatory to fill the Donor History Questionnaire (DHQ) by using Dubai Health application.

Certain eligibility criteria are outlined as follows:

• Blood donors must carry their valid Emirates ID throughout the donation procedure.
• Blood donors should be in good general health at the time of donation and between the ages of 18 and 65.
• Body weight should be 50 kg and above (donors who are 21 years old or younger must be 55 kg and above).
• Donors must have had enough sleep (at least 4 hours) on the previous day of donation.
• Donors should have had healthy food at least 4 hours or less before donation and should avoid fatty foods like egg, mutton, butter, cheese, etc., at least 12 hours before donation.
• Pregnant and lactating women are not recommended to donate blood for the sake of their health and their baby's health.
• Persons who have returned from malaria-endemic countries are not eligible to donate for 30 days (refer to the attached list of malaria-endemic countries).

 A person cannot donate if they:
