03 Feb, 2010

Arab Bank, in cooperation with the National Blood Bank, organized a blood donation drive for its employees at the Bank's head offices in Amman. There was high number of participants, with over 70 employees donating their blood.

Arab Bank conducted this drive to support the National Blood Bank. “The importance of donating blood can’t be stressed enough,” said Ms. Dina Shoman, Executive Vice President of Branding at Arab Bank. “There are many patients in the Kingdom who are in need of blood; and through donations and drives like this, lives can be saved.” Ms. Shoman further added, “It was remarkable to witness the employee’s enthusiasm and their willingness to support this noble cause.”

The National Blood Bank, part of the Ministry of Health, was on the Arab Bank premises with Dr. Nedal Omar Rashid, a blood bank specialist who oversaw the donations. “This event was very well organized and I would like to thank the Arab Bank for their efforts during this campaign,” Dr. Rashid said.

Arab Bank has conducted many blood donation campaigns historically. Activities such as the blood drive are part of Arab Bank’s corporate social responsibility program Together, with one of its dimensions focused on employee volunteering and citizenship.
