Blood donation camp evokes good response

SALALAH – The call to donate blood evoked good response from the community and corporate at a time when there is shortage of blood in the blood banks due to less number of donors and more demand from among the general and Covid-19 patients.

At a special blood donation campaign the employees of Crowne Plaza Salalah Resort donated 38 units of blood. For this a blood donation camp was organised inside the hotel premises in association with the Sultan Qaboos Hospital.

A total of 40 employees took part in the blood donation camp.

Manuel Levonian, General Manager of the resort, thanked both the staff members and the Sultan Qaboos Hospital for this generous cause.

“I am incredibly inspired by the support of our colleagues that came together to join the blood donation drive. This gesture shows how we help and care for others especially during the crisis time of the Covid-19 pandemic and also our commitment towards the IHG Corporate Social Responsibility.”

Dr Mohammed Ahmed Morgan of Sultan Qaboos Hospital thanked the hotel for supporting the noble cause of blood donation and said, “This great initiative and partnership is very timely amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. This will aim to spread awareness among the community on the importance of blood donation and how a drop of blood donated can be instrumental in saving a life.”
