Aster DM Healthcare Commits To acilitating 30,000 Units Of Blood
(26 November 2017)
Aster organises frequent blood donation drives in association with Dubai Health Authority and various blood banks


In alignment with the ‘Year of Giving’, Aster DM healthcare together with government authorized blood banks is encouraging communities to come forward to donate blood, and support the ‘Drop of Hope’ initiative. As part of the Aster @30 anniversary celebrations’ Aster Volunteers programme, the company is committed to facilitating 30,000 units of blood donation across the GCC, India and Philippines.

The campaign goes hand in hand with the DHA’s efforts to encourage voluntary blood donors and raise awareness about the importance of regular blood donation. All blood banks need to constantly replenish their stocks to avoid the risk of shortage as the shelf life of blood is not more than six weeks.[i] The requirement of blood is imperative in certain diseases like thalassemia, hemophilia, and in medical procedures like heart surgery, organ transplants and cancer.

“A little time and a small act of giving from each of us can help save millions of lives each year. We wish to do our part in contributing to the DHA’s initiative to encourage blood donation in UAE. And we are extending our efforts across the 9 countries where we are operating by committing to 30,000 units of blood donation as part of our 30th Anniversary celebrations. In the true spirit of giving back to the community, we are leveraging our Aster Volunteers programme to encourage and enable people from all walks of life, all nationalities and all ages to join us in this drive. All our doctors and staff across our units have come forward to volunteer in this noble cause,” said Dr. Azad Moopen, Founder, Chairman and Managing Director, Aster DM Healthcare.

UAE residents can donate blood at the following locations and dates:

30 November 2017 – Global Village (5 pm – 10 pm)
2 December 2017 – Global Village (5 pm – 10 pm)

A blood donation camp held on 17th November received encouraging response from UAE residents.

Those who would like to donate blood can visit  and enroll to be part of upcoming drives.
