“Consumer Protection” Staff at Rustaq Donate Blood


A group of staff of the Department of Consumer Protection at Al-Rustaq recently donated blood as part of the campaigns conducted by the Blood Bank at Al-Rustaq Hospital.  The donation comes due to their belief in the importance of interacting with such campaigns that aim to collect large amounts of blood which help those in need whether injured or sick and save the emergency cases that require urgent transferring of large amounts of blood especially in cases of traffic accidents and urgent operations.


‏The participation in such campaigns comes in light of strengthening the Department’s staff role in the local community and along the humanitarian role and social responsibility of their partnership to extend a helping hand for the patients and hospitals that need large amounts of blood.  In addition, it comes as part of raising the awareness of the staff and the local community about the importance of blood donation to save lives.  The initiative is part and parcel of the social responsibility activities aiming to support community’s health and safety which the Public Authority of Consumer Protection is keen to hold.
