UPAC Organizes Blood Donation Campaign in Kuwait
18 APRIL 2017, KUWAIT CITY
United Projects for Aviation Services Company (UPAC), a leading commercial real estate and facilities management company, organized a blood donation campaign that saw 17 bags of blood, amounting to 8.5 litres, donated to the Kuwait Central Blood Bank.
The initiative called “Blood is Life” took place over four hours in the Discovery Mall in Kuwait City at the beginning of the month, and was open to all mall visitors. UPAC employees and investors attended and donated blood in support of the Kuwait Central Blood Bank and the society.
Nadia Akil, CEO of UPAC, said: “On behalf of UPAC, I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who participated and offered their donations, as well as to the team from the Kuwait Central Blood Bank. Giving blood is an important contribution to society, and as a company that puts people first, we find it is our responsibility to try and give back whenever possible.”
In Kuwait, there is a need for hundreds of blood donations every day, and demand is growing. Donating blood contributes to helping those in need of immediate transfusions following an accident, as well as restoring the health of patients recovering from illnesses. Anyone in good health between the age of 18 and 60 can donate blood, regardless of blood type.
