Dubai: To mark the end of the Year of Giving, Pakistan Association Dubai (PAD) held a blood donation drive, which saw participation of over 150 people belonging to different nationalities.

The campaign was organised by the Medical Wing of PAD and attracted members of eight social clubs to give blood to the Dubai Blood Donation Centre.

“As we move from the Year of Giving towards the Year of Zayed, our commitment towards community service is stronger than ever. Our vision for the not-for-profit Pakistan Medical Centre is to serve people of all nationalities with state-of-the-art health services,” said Dr Faisal Ikram, President of PAD.

He also added that the support of the Community Development Authority (CDA) of Dubai throughout all the activities has been tremendous giving them confidence at every step.

Dr Nighat Aftab, President of Medical Wing said: “Donating blood saves lives and it is our responsibility to take the opportunity of the donation drive and give back to the community.”
“New Year is the time when people are busy and blood banks fall short of blood, but that doesn’t mean those in need should be ignored. Our motive is to gather people from all walks of life and all nationalities on one platform to serve a common human interest,” she added.
