Oman Arab Bank con­ducts Staff Blood Do­na­tion Drive

Muscat Daily - - PRESS RELEASES -

As part of its com­mit­ment to com­mu­nity, Oman Arab Bank (OAB) or­gan­ised an in­ter­nal Staff Blood Do­na­tion Drive at its head of­fice. The event was or­gan­ised by the So­cial Com­mit­tee of OAB in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Min­istry of Health and saw a good num­ber of OAB em­ploy­ees vol­un­teer to do­nate blood.

Hi­lal O al Siyabi, head of CSR at OAB, said, “At OAB, we be­lieve that we have a re­spon­si­bil- ity to­wards the lo­cal com­mu­nity, which has to be ex­pressed through both our val­ues and ac­tions. This drive is a clear re­flec­tion of this ide­ol­ogy, one that is aimed at rais­ing aware­ness on the im­por­tance of blood do­na­tion as well as pro­vid­ing an av­enue through which our staff can do­nate, espe­cially for those whose oth­er­wise tight sched­ules would not al­low them to par­tic­i­pate.

“Many do not re­alise the im­por­tance of blood do­na­tions and the fact that a sin­gle unit of blood do­nated can save mul­ti­ple peo­ple’s lives. Fur­ther­more, the need is con­stant for a healthy and re­li­able blood sup­ply.

“As such, on be­half of OAB, I would like to thank each and ev­ery em­ployee who do­nated blood on the day as well as the staff at the Min­istry of Health and mem­bers of our So­cial Com­mit­tee who helped in host­ing such a suc­cess­ful event.”

OAB is en­gaged in var­i­ous ini­tia­tives, such as this blood do­na­tion drive, through­out the year, each of which is in­tended to en­hance the so­cial well-be­ing of the com­mu­nity in which it op­er­ates. Some of these so­cial projects in­volve di­rect sup­port from its em­ploy­ees through in­valu­able work done by the So­cial Com­mit­tee at OAB.

OAB is one of the first banks to be es­tab­lished in Oman, with a rich and proud his­tory. To­day, the bank op­er­ates a net­work of 57 branches and eight of­fices.
