Almana Group conducts Blood Donation Drive


As part of Almana Group’s core values and commitment to support the local community, a Blood Donation Drive was launched during April 2019 targeting Almana employees. The event was supported by Hamad Medical Center who helped organize this activity and make it a great success.
Blood donation is not only a duty to support our community and help those who are in need. It is also very important for our health. There is no end for the benefits of blood donation for those who need it. One blood donation can save as many as 3 lives. Donating Blood has many effects on the physical and emotional well-being.
Emotionally, blood donation helps reduce stress, get rid of negative feelings and provides a sense of belonging to reduce isolation. Physically, regular blood donation lowers the risk of heart disease and heart attack because it reduces blood viscosity and lowers iron stores. It also reduces the risk of cancer as it helps increase antioxidant capacity. Last, blood donation offers Free Health Check Up. In order to donate blood one must undergo a health screening covering pulse, blood pressure, body-temperature and hemoglobin levels. This test offers excellent insight into one’s health and can effectively detect future health problems.
Mr. Tariq Almana, Group Finance Director commented on this activity saying “In Almana, we do our utmost efforts to contribute to our local community as part of our core values”. “Nothing is more rewarding than volunteering to save someone else’s life” he added.
Mr. Chaouki Younes, Group HR Manager said “We recognize the benefits of blood donation not only for the recipient but also for the donor. That is why we wanted to promote to our employees about the importance of blood donation and being a “hero” can be as simple as donating blood to save lives”. “We thank Hamad Medical Center who helped us conduct this activity successfully and we look forward to working with them again on this very noble cause” he concluded.
