Ahlibank, one of the leading financial institutions in Qatar, organised a blood donation campaign at its head office in Al Sadd in partnership with Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC). The campaign’s objective is to raise awareness of the importance of blood donation and contribute and support the blood bank in Qatar, the bank has said in a statement. Mohamed al-Namla, Ahlibank’s deputy CEO - Business Support, Services & Human Resources, said: “The blood donation campaign is held in the context of the existing cooperation between Ahlibank and HMC, bringing together employees from all departments and branches of the bank who are keen on taking part in this humanitarian effort. This campaign is part of the bank's commitment within the community and in line with the bank's corporate social responsibility, which aims to support the blood bank reserve in Qatar hospitals and promoting employee awareness on the importance of blood donation."
Al-Namla added, “I would like to thank all Ahlibank employees who volunteered and HMC for their continued support for this campaign. Donating blood to save the lives of patients is a perfect step towards nurturing the culture of volunteering in the community and passing it over to future generations rendering it an entitlement due to needy patients. The campaign was not only popular within Ahlibank’s employees, but also amongst customers, which reflected a spirit of co-operation and benevolence.”
