Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

JW Mar­riott Kuwait spon­sored the 4th blood do­na­tion cam­paign for the Pharaoh Bik­ers Mo­tor­cy­cle Club, the first and only Egyp­tian mo­tor­cy­cle club in Kuwait, which was or­ga­nized in co­op­er­a­tion with the Kuwait Cen­tral Blood Bank. The event took place on Fri­day, Novem­ber 11th at the lux­u­ri­ous Al Jahra Ball­room. More than 200 bik­ers par­tic­i­pated in this great ini­tia­tive. The event started with a pa­rade from Salmiya to Kuwait City, des­ti­na­tion JW Mar­riott Kuwait where the cam­paign was held.

A spe­cial med­i­cal clinic was set up by the Cen­tral Blood Bank to al­low the bik­ers to do­nate blood while also giv­ing them the op­por­tu­nity to un­dergo some ba­sic health checks, in­clud­ing blood pres­sure. The blood bank was able to col­lect more than 70 blood units.

The Doc­tors from the KCBB ex­plained that blood is al­ways needed in Kuwait, and high­lighted that they are pleased with the gen­eros­ity and level of aware­ness of both lo­cals and ex­pa­tri­ates in the coun­try. "We are very ac­tive when it comes to char­ity and sup­port­ing lo­cal com­mu­nity" said Ramez Adel, the Me­dia Of­fi­cer of the Pharaoh Bik­ers."

"Cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity comes in many forms and do­nat­ing blood is a very valu­able way of con­tribut­ing to lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties." Ramez added. Com­ment­ing on the event, Ge­orge Aoun, Clus­ter Gen­eral Man­ager of Kuwait Mar­riott Ho­tels, said "spon­sor­ing this great event re­in­forces Mar­riott's on­go­ing com­mit­ment to­wards sup­port­ing ev­ery as­pect of the lo­cal com­mu­nity and en­vi­ron­ment, while ful­fill­ing its global "Spirit to Serve" ini­tia­tives.

"Through or­ga­niz­ing and spon­sor­ing blood drives, we aim to spread aware­ness in the lo­cal com­mu­nity on the im­por­tance of serv­ing as a good ex­am­ple that up­holds the value of the com­mu­nity as a whole. We strongly en­cour­age all ci­ti­zens and res­i­dents in Kuwait to do­nate to this vi­tal cause when­ever they can, as a mis­sion to pro­vide care to in­di­vid­u­als in need, and save lives," Aoun added.

In­done­sian Am­bas­sador to Kuwait Tatang Razak and his spouse Marita Razak hosted an event to pro­mote Batik, an In­done­sian tra­di­tional tex­tile her­itage, at the In­done­sian Em­bassy re­cently. A fash­ion show fea­tur­ing Batik Mus­lim dresses took place dur­ing the event.
