September 16, 2013
Al Ramz Securities, a leading research, advisory and financial services institution, recently concluded a high-turnout blood donation campaign organized in partnership with the Abu Dhabi Blood Bank, Khidmah, and other commercial tenants as well as residents of the Sky Tower @ Reem Island.
Running from September 10 to 11, 2013, the campaign was conceptualized by Al Ramz’s ‘Pay It Forward’ committee, an internal employee group established to broaden and deepen the company’s involvement in charitable works, volunteerism, and local community initiatives. Khidmah, an Abu Dhabi -based strata services Management Company, actively assisted in the campaign and was a key contributor to the initiative’s huge success.
“The Pay It Forward committee was established to develop a culture of caring and
sensitivity towards the need of others and promote voluntary work. As its namesake states, it seeks to pay back the local community even a small portion of what this great country has given us by extending our help to people in need. We also aim to enhance community awareness on the concept of sharing and the spirit of giving, a duty of each and every one of us per the tenets of humanity and the religious faith we all share,” said Mohammad Al Mortada Al Dandashi, Partner and Managing Director, Al Ramz Securities.
“Donating money is not enough, though; the ultimate goal is to pool our earnest personal efforts. Blood donation is an excellent way to translate our noble aspirations into action, as just a unit of blood from a generous donor can help save the lives of up to three people, which is priceless. We extend our sincere appreciation to all the blood donors who participated in this campaign. Their good deed will go a long way towards helping accident victims, cancer patients, those undergoing surgery, and children who suffer from blood disorders. God willing, this will be the beginning of many more initiatives of this kind to follow,” he added.
Al Dandashi noted the tremendous community response to the campaign and commended the valuable efforts of Al Ramz staff, the Abu Dhabi Blood Bank, Khidmah, and Sky Tower @ Reem Island tenants for their wholehearted participation.
