A blood donation camp began at the Sun Siyam World on Friday evening, as part of a blood drive launched by the Sun Siyam Resorts to celebrate its 33rd anniversary.
Similar camps were previously held in Male’ City and Sun Siyam Olhuveli.
Sun Siyam Group’s assistant general manager Hassan Adil told Sun that they launched its first blood drive back in 2015. Adil said the camp has expanded since then.
Adil, underscoring Sun Siyam Group to be amongst the best in the Maldives, said they strive for the best in all their endeavors.
“Blood donation is a national endeavor. Donating blood to fellow citizens is something we must do. If we take the initiative and donate blood as a group, then we can donate a lot of blood fast,” he said.
Sun Siyam Group’s employees also donated gifts for thalassemia patients to the Maldives Blood Service on Monday to mark World Thalassemia Day.
Sun Siyam Resorts’ blood donation drive will continue until June 9th. The camps will be held in different resorts on different days.
Maldives has 940 registered thalassemia patients. 320 of them get their transfusions from Male’.
