The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ organised a blood donation campaign on Monday 29 September 2014, in coordination with Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC). The organisation of this campaign comes as part of the authority’s continuous efforts to participate in community initiatives, especially those that have an impact on peoples’ life.

The campaign is scheduled to be held again next month to accommodate more employees who wished to donate but could not due to time constraint. Commenting on the event, Ashghal’s Public Relations and Communications Manager, Abdulla Saad Aman Al Saad said: “Ashghal is always keen to participate in community events, especially voluntary initiatives that positively impact society and encourage individuals to participate and fulfil humanitarian duty towards the community.”

“We are proud of our partnership with HMC to support this noble initiative, and we look forward to participating in other new initiatives of this kind. Our collaboration also supports the relationship we have with HMC through various health projects implemented by the authority to promote the services of the healthcare sector." Al Saad added. The Public Works Authority is keen to participate in the implementation of various initiatives and community events and promote them across the organisation. The authority encourages employees to volunteer and engage in such initiatives by hosting and sponsoring events that benefit communities.
