Royal Commission in Jubail organized last Wednesday the 3rd Blood Donation campaign, which lasted for one day and was attended by a large number of officials including directors of departments and staff of the Royal Commission in Jubail.
The campaign which has been organized by the Public Relations Department in collaboration with RC Health Services Department has obtained strong response from RC staff, coming their way to RC Visitor Center where the noble event took place. At the start, blood donors will be received at a pre-arranged reception-like clinic and start filling out a pre-donation form which asks detailed questions about the donor’s health status to determine the suitability and quality of blood donation. Subsequently, blood pressure and diabetes test will be done before directing the donor to blood donation area.
Organizers of the said event commended the donors for giving their precious “gift of blood” and also expressed appreciation to Health Services Department staff for facilitating the donation procedures. It was also pointed out that such humanitarian action could be best demonstrated by donating blood which could help save lives of more than one patient, thus, demanded a continuous campaign of this noble deed in the future.
