Blood donation drive held on campus
Members of the American University of Sharjah (AUS) community gave the gift of life at an on-campus blood donation drive held on October 20-21.
Commenting on the drive, Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, said, "I wish to thank all the donors of this blood drive for sharing the gracious gift of life. Their kind gesture will surely benefit someone in need. Many thanks as well to our student volunteers and to the Emirati Club for their time and effort in supporting this campaign."
Mohammed Althani, a senior civil engineering student who volunteered in the campaign said, "It was such a successful event. We really enjoyed helping the students understand how important blood donation is to them and to others. We also made sure to promote the concept of 'donate a little, save a lot,' to encourage as many students as possible to donate and help those in need."
Donating blood was a first for Maryam Al Saleh, a finance student. She revealed that she has always wanted to donate blood and advised other students to donate their blood because blood donation is a form of charity.
The campaign was held in conjunction with the Community Services Division of the Office of Student Affairs and the Dubai Blood Donation Center.
