Galfar Al Misnad held a blood donation campaign in association with Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) Blood Bank at the company’s Umm Salal Ali camp recently. The company has been regularly running this campaign with its employees since 2012. A record number of 214 employees from Galfar’s camps, sites, and offices, donated their blood this year.
Galfar Al Misnad, a 100% Qatari construction company, has been operating for nearly 25 years in Qatar and is an integral partner in several nation building projects. Galfar is known for its commitment to social responsibility, and organises regular company-wide health awareness campaigns. The company also executes environment awareness sessions for the community at large; participates in corporate sports events like cricket and football; and runs an educational initiative to teach their workers English and financial literacy.
The Galfar Clinic caters to the company’s nearly 6000 strong workforce and this well-equipped medical facility has been in operation since 2014. The health and safety of the employees have always been the top priority for the Galfar management. The Clinic personnel regularly conduct periodic health check-ups of all employees in addition to providing medical care. Galfar Al Misnad has been consistently recognised and appreciated by HMC for the company’s “humanitarian role in organising field blood donation campaigns.”
“The success of the blood donation programme is due to the enthusiastic support of all Galfarians in mobilising donors and participating in this blood donation,” said Dr Abdul Vadood, Medical Officer, Galfar Al Misnad.
To facilitate the accessibility for its employees, the company provided special transportation for all volunteers to reach Umm Salal Ali. The donation drive ran from 7:30am to 4pm at the Galfar Clinic, and was handled by 29 staff from HMC Blood Bank.
