Emirates Central Cooling Corporation (Empower), the largest district cooling service provider in the region, held its fourth blood donation campaign in aid of children suffering from thalassaemia and other blood conditions recently under the aegis of Dubai Blood Donation Centre of Dubai Health Authority.

A significant number of volunteers donated blood as part of the company’s corporate social responsibility. The donated blood will go towards helping “Thalassemia” patients as well as others in need of blood.

Some 154 persons donated blood during the event. Students from high schools put up an entertainment program for the donors. All the donors, sponsors and volunteers were recognised with certificates of appreciation, gifts and prizes.

Ahmed Bin Shafar, CEO, Empower said: “The primary aim of establishing Empower was preserving the environment and to give our children a better life with natural resources.

This campaign will help meet the continuous need for blood supplies in Dubai. Empower is keen to continue such initiatives which reflect its firm commitment to society.”

Blood donations plat a crucial role in saving the lives of many, particularly children suffering from thalassaemia, who normally need repeated blood transfusions, in addition to many others who are being treated for other serious diseases.

The response was unprecedented and donors have already signed for Empower’s next Blood Donation Campaign expected to be held in/around August 2010.

The campaign was held with the help of sponsors, including Mohammed Bin Rashid Establishment for SME Development, Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC), Transgulf Electro Mechanical, Mario Associates, Gea Ecoflex, Technical & Trading Establishment, Union National Bank, Al Zarooni Electo Mechanical, Mezbaan Hyderabad Restaurant, Jeema Mineral Water (PSC) and AECOM Ellerbe Becket.

Blood transfusion is a vital aspect to combating “Thalassemia”, a genetic blood disorder that affects a person’s ability to produce haemoglobin, resulting in severe anemia.

Bin Shafar added: “Empower has always been at the forefront of organising such community focused campaigns.

We thank all the Empower employees and members of the public, who came forward to assist Thalassemia patients.”
