SUHAR: Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company (Orpic) organised its annual blood donation campaign under the title of “Share a Smile Give Blood” at Mina al Fahal in cooperation with Bausher Blood Bank. The campaign comes in accordance with one of Orpic’s core values in serving Oman with pride and as part of Orpic Voluntary Plan 2017, which aims to raise awareness on the life-saving importance of donating blood. The campaign witnessed a wide participation from Orpic employees who heartily came to participate in this noble initiative.
Dr Hilal al Hinai, General Manager Corporate Support Services, said: “We always at Orpic look forward to underpin a solid ground of engagement with our community by participating and taking role in such noble events that aims at spreading the social awareness about how blood donation is crucial particularly when it comes to be a lifesaving issue. We are proud of the continuing cooperation between Orpic and the Blood Bank during the last years which has resulted in organising many blood donation campaigns in all Orpic premises either in Mina al Fahal or in Suhar.”
