Blood Donation Camp at ATLAS Hospital!

ATLAS Hospital, Ruwi conducted a Blood donation camp at the hospital premises on May 5, 2014 with the motto “Donate Blood - Save a Life!”

The camp was conducted in association with Department of Blood Services, Ministry of Health (Baushar Blood bank). The camp witnessed around 60 donors comprising of Omani nationals, expats and ATLAS employees.

Our aim in organizing the camp was to help fulfill the needs of the Omani people for safe, reliable and cost-effective blood transfusions at times of need and to help maintain a stable blood supply. A secondary goal was to promote local awareness about the important need for voluntary blood donation. The transfusion of blood and blood components helps to save the lives of countless patients suffering from a wide range of illnesses. Blood Transfusion Services (BTS) is the vital part of modern health care system without which efficient medical care is impossible.

“You are walking around with the most important commodity in the World. You can neither manufacture it nor is it available from any source other than human beings, and for people who need your blood type, you are the only source of this life saving gift. By the gift of safe blood, the lives of millions of recipients have been saved. The gift of blood is a unique gift from one person to another” said Dr. M.M. Ramachandran, Chairman & Founder of ATLAS Jewellery & Group.
