OMASCO organised blood donation campaign for staff
Tuesday, February 19, 2018
In continuation of the company's efforts to enhance its positive role in the service of the local community, Oman Marketing and Services Company organized a blood donation campaign at its head office in Wattaya.
The campaign targeted all the employees of the company from all branches in the Governorate of Muscat, and everyone was eager to participate in the campaign. A large number of donors registered for this campaign, prompting the campaign to determine another day to donate.
It is worth mentioning that the number of participants who contributed to the campaign venue was greater than last year, thanks to the intensive advertising campaigns that were published internally, as well as the information that was explained to the staff and communicated to them about the importance and benefits of blood donation morally and physically.
This came in the framework of the company's efforts to serve the community in cooperation with the Blood Bank of the Ministry of Health. The benefits of blood donation help in increasing the activity of bone marrow in the production of new quantities of cells (red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets), and increase blood circulation, in addition to reducing the risk of heart disease and blockage of arteries, and prevents the accumulation of iron in patients who suffer from excessive iron concentration (blood pigmentation).
The management of the company expressed its thanks and gratitude to all participants and organizers of this campaign for this noble humanitarian campaign serving our society.
