Al-Futtaim Motors’ 5th Annual Blood Donation Campaign Gets Underway
(21 August 2014)


Al-Futtaim Motors, exclusive distributor of Toyota, Lexus and Hino vehicles in the UAE, has launched its fifth annual blood donation campaign. The highly successful inaugural event was held at the flagship Toyota showroom in Abu Dhabi and attended by dozens of associates who donated enough blood to save up to 228 lives.

Dubbed ‘My Blood for the UAE’ Al-Futtaim Motors’ blood donation drive is in support of the ‘My Blood for My Country’ initiative launched by H.H. Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Executive Council.

Out of the 87 volunteers who turned up during the 12-hour window, a total of 76 were found to be fit for the purpose.  Between them a total of 34,200ml of blood was collected that will go a long way to maintaining a good supply of blood for the UAE’s patients in need.

“This was our first blood donation activity in Abu Dhabi and we are overwhelmed by the response of our associates who selflessly turned up in high numbers,” said Jon Williams, Managing Director, Al-Futtaim Motors. “Such was the appeal amongst our associates that we had to prolong the event by five full hours with the last donor coming through at 8pm.”

“As part of the fabric of this nation, Al-Futtaim Motors feels compelled to play a role in initiatives designed to save lives and help improve the health of members of our community. Through this activity we are able to help the UAE fortify its supplies of red blood cells, plasma platelets and cryoprecipitate to support people who are in need of blood transfusions due to a variety of medical conditions.”

Al-Futtaim Motors’ ‘My Blood for the UAE’ campaign continues with two more blood activities at its Dubai Festival City Toyota showroom and Sheikh Zayed Road Toyota showroom.
