Grand Heritage Doha Hotel and Spa participated in a blood donating campaign for a second year in a row as part of its humanitarian act. For the duration of one day, staff members of the hotel were able to provide blood donations to Hamad Medical Corporation’s blood bank.

Two convoys from Hamad Hospital to Grand Heritage Doha Hotel and Spa were organized, where the hotel’s staff were informed on the effects and benefits of blood donations through a simplified presentation. The employees were also briefed on the importance of this medical procedure and how it contributes to saving lives of those carrying blood diseases, as well as those who need blood during surgery.

Blood donations are the easiest and most direct ways to help save lives. The hotel is delighted to cooperate with Hamad Medical Corporation on this matter, and confirms that this contribution on behalf of its staff signifies Grand Heritage family’s commitment to help and support the local community. We are particularly impressed with the positive reactions that came from staff members; therefore we thank them for their enthusiasm and their contribution”.

Overall, a total of 50 staff members contributed to the cause by donating their blood which will be used to help current and future patients in need, proving the campaign to be a success.

The Grand Heritage Doha Hotel and Spa is part of the Grand Heritage Group, a chain of luxury hotels around the world. It opened its doors in Doha in mid 2011 and is located by the Aspire Academy for Sports Excellence. The hotel has since been an important presence in the hospitality industry in Qatar, both aesthetically and by measure of its services.
