2017 is the Year of Giving in the UAE, and there are so many ways to embrace that. A worthy way – and one that personally saved my life 18 years ago – is to donate blood.
One in three people will require a transfusion of blood at least once in their life, but only one in 30 people donate. Blood cannot be manufactured, so the generosity of donors is essential.
There are hospitals and mobile centres across the UAE who will welcome your donation – it’s quick and easy. Importantly, you can save the lives of three people with just one pint.
