    DMCC Blood Donation
    Drive 2024


    You're invited to join us at Almas Tower for our upcoming Blood Donation Drive, hosted in partnership with the Dubai Health.

    Your participation can make a life-saving difference. Every minute, someone in need - a trauma victim, a surgery patient, or someone with a blood disorder - relies on donated blood.

    Your single donation can save up to three lives, providing red blood cells, plasma, and platelets. 

    A simple and safe process, healthy individuals can donate multiple times a year, not only benefitting patients but also experiencing great health advantages for donors.

    Here's why you should donate:

    • Detect potential health issues early
    • Reduce excess iron levels, promoting better cardiovascular health
    • Stimulate blood cell production, keeping you feeling energised
    • Lower the risk of heart disease and certain cancer
    So, volunteer today and save lives. Our dedicated team will guide you through the donation process, ensuring your comfort and safety every step of the way.

    Important notes:

    • All volunteers are required to register prior to the donation and select an available slot.
    • Read the eligibility criteria before registration
    • Download the app through Apple or Android
    • Fill the mandatory questionnaire on the Dubai Health app (Dubai Health APP → Blood donation → make a blood donation)
    • Show the QR code from the app to the personnel to proceed with the donation
    • For further information, read Dubai Health's blood donation guidelines.
