The Kanoo Group organises blood donation drive
The Kanoo Group launched its 19th Blood Donation Drive for all its employees, in collaboration with Blood Donation Center, Latifa Hospital. The campaign was held on 19th April 2018 at its Bur Dubai headquarters.

This comes as a part of The Kanoo Group's emphasis on the importance of social corporate responsibility, which includes supporting hospitals and blood banks in replenishing their supplies.

Commenting on the campaign, Ms. Maha Kanoo, Head of HR and Marketing said, "At The Kanoo Group, we believe that we have a responsibility towards our local community. One day it could be someone you love who needs a blood transfusion. Donating blood is one of the highest forms of helping people and saving lives."

"The Kanoo Group is engaged in various initiatives such as this Blood Donation Drive which we organise every year, in partnership with the Ministry of Health. We aim to raise awareness on this cause by encouraging positive practices to benefit the individual and society, whilst also helping promote a healthy lifestyle amongst our staff," added Mr. Ali Islim, Marketing Manager-UAE & Oman.

The blood donation event lasted for half day with a large number of employees volunteering to donate blood. A total of 56 successful donors contributed remarkably in favour of the success of the campaign, reflecting their willingness to support such causes in light of the company's continuous efforts to serve the community's goals.

To make blood donation safe and increase the confidence of the employees in voluntary blood donation, many safety measures has been recently implemented by the Ministry of Health. Stringent, meticulous and serious donor screening is necessary to afford protection to blood donors and recipients.

A representative of the hospital said that The Kanoo Group had one of the highest numbers of successful donors from their previous weeks' visits with other organisations, thus concluding on a very positive note.

Ms. Maha Kanoo remarked, "As such, on behalf of The Kanoo Group, I would like to thank each and every employee who donated blood, as well as the staff of Latifa Hospital for helping us host such a fruitful event." I also commend the Marketing and Property team for their efforts in the culmination of this yearly cause."
