Successful blood donation drive at AUS
American University of Sharjah's (AUS) Office of Student Affairs (OSA) successfully held a blood donation drive on September 22, 2014 at the university's Student Center. The blood drive, themed "Be the Initiator," was held with the support of student volunteers from OSA's Community Services Office.
The campaign received a positive turnout from students, faculty and staff with over 100 donors supporting the initiative. Held in collaboration with Dubai Blood Donation Center and Sharjah Social Services Department, the medical team was equipped with the latest medical equipment and supplies to ensure the success of the campaign.
"This humanitarian initiative plays a significant role in spreading awareness to our students in extending help to those in need. I thank the student volunteers for helping out and especially the blood donors for coming forward to support this initiative," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. "The blood drive is one of OSA's many initiatives that promote student volunteerism and community outreach," she added.
