Hundreds Turn Out For Ramadan Blood Donation Drive Organised By Embassy Of India

The Embassy of India in Muscat, in collaboration with the Health Ministry of Oman, successfully carried out the Annual Ramadan Blood Donation Drive for 2024 from 29th March to 6th April.

This year, the Indian community showed great support, with over 1,000 individuals stepping forward to donate, resulting in the collection of approximately 800 units of blood.

Thamara Al Gafri, Director General of Health Services in Muscat, and Amit Narang, the Ambassador of India to the Sultanate of Oman, inaugurated the week-long event on 29th March.

The main objective of the blood donation drive organized by the Embassy is to address the shortage of blood in Oman's blood banks, especially during the Holy Month of Ramadan.

This year marks the third consecutive year that the Embassy of India has conducted a blood donation drive during Ramadan.

Throughout the past three years, the Embassy has consistently held such donation camps, with each year witnessing a significant turnout and contribution, surpassing 1,000 units of blood.

Ambassador Amit Narang emphasized, "Blood donation is a noble act of social service that directly contributes to saving lives. It is a pure humanitarian gesture, as blood knows no boundaries."

The Embassy expresses gratitude to all individuals who selflessly contributed to the blood donation drive, along with the different groups and collaborators for their significant assistance.

Acknowledgements are extended to Sewa International, Bahwan Engineering Group, Al Naba Group, Al Ansari Group, Al Tasnim Group, the Dawoodi Bohra community, various Yoga organizations in Oman, Indian Schools in Oman, Lulu Hypermarket, and other entities for their valuable contributions to the accomplishment of the blood donation initiative.
