Over 100 donors join Dubai Police’s ‘Every Drop Counts’ blood donation drive

The campaign aimed to promote a culture of voluntary blood donation among the community, with the participation of 120 donors from diverse nationalities.
Fatima Buhajeer, Director of the Positive Spirit Council, emphasised the importance of blood donation and the need for community-wide participation in this humanitarian initiative.
She stressed the significance of spreading the culture of blood donation among the public and maintaining public health.
Buhajeer highlighted the value of enhancing humanitarian efforts that save lives and foster community partnerships.
She continued, “Officers, non-commissioned officers, civilians, and individuals from diverse backgrounds participated in the blood donation campaign, recognising it as a national duty. This benefits the donors and those in need and reinforces the culture of social solidarity, voluntary work, and the noble humanitarian goals of strengthening community partnerships.”
The Positive Spirit volunteers provided informative guidance on the various health benefits of blood donation. These include activating the circulatory system, stimulating bone marrow cells to renew their activities and increase their effectiveness, reducing blood pressure and headaches, and increasing vitality and overall well-being. Blood donation also helps remove oxidants and reduce oxidative stress by raising antioxidant enzymes like “superoxide dismutase.”
In addition to educating the donors on these advantages, the volunteers also offered personalised advice, conducted medical examinations, and provided medical recommendations to ensure the safety and well-being of all participants.
