250 eager STS volunteers registered to be part of our latest blood donation drive on 14 and 15 May.
STS regularly hosts blood donation drives for the Dubai Health Authority to give our staff the opportunity to contribute to this noble and life-giving cause. After screening and approvals, 144 donors from STS and GEMS Education were approved for donation, providing a total in the region of 144 pints (70 litres) of life-saving blood to the blood bank.
The DHA applauded all who were involved and encouraged STS to continue supporting their work through future blood donation drives.
