Qatargas employees and contractors participated in two respective blood donation campaigns organised by the Company’s Medical Department in cooperation with Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) at the Qatargas Doha Head Office and Ras Laffan Headquarters recently. A fully equipped mobile blood donation unit arrived from HMC along with a team of medical professionals and parked at the Qatargas premises to help facilitate the drive. The HMC team was assisted by Qatargas Medical Center personnel.

As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, Qatargas has been organising blood donation campaigns at its premises over the past 15 years, in cooperation with HMC. Hundreds of Qatargas employees and contractors have donated blood during these campaigns. The Company organizes four blood donation drives each year, two in Doha and two in Ras Laffan. In addition to helping the blood bank increase its supply of blood and blood components, Qatargas believes that such campaigns also help disseminate the culture of voluntary blood donation in the society.

Qatargas has also been supporting as a Platinum Sponsor the 'World Blood Donor Day' celebration organised by Hamad Medical Corporation over the past three years. HMC has felicitated Qatargas in recognition of the Company’s initiative in organising regular blood donation drives every year and in appreciation of its support to the World Blood Donor Day celebration.
