Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), the financial and business hub connecting the region’s emerging markets with the developed markets of Europe, Asia and the Americas, joined the world in commemorating the World Blood Donor Day, an international initiative by World Health Organisation (WHO). Under the theme “Every blood donor is a hero”, the initiative aims to raise awareness of the need for safe blood and to motivate voluntary and regular blood donations.
DIFC invited its community to donate blood at a mobile clinic set up at the DIFC Conference Centre by Latifa Hospital in Dubai.
Nabil M. Ramadhan, Deputy CEO and Chief Operating Officer of DIFC Authority, said: “At DIFC, we are committed to supporting global CSR initiatives that address critical issues and needs. Blood donation is a particularly important event as it brings people from all walks of life together behind a single humanitarian cause. We thank all those who accepted our invitation to support this cause.”
