AbbVie employees support the Children’s Cancer Center’s blood donation campaign ahead of Ramadan

AbbVie, a research-based global biopharmaceutical company, today organized for members of its staff to visit the King Fahad National Centre for Children’s Cancer to donate blood. 

 

The King Fahad National Center for Children’s Cancer has organized a three-day blood donation initiative to encourage more blood donations. The drive is before Ramadan to avoid the usual drop in blood donations which happens during the fasting month. 

 

Speaking on the initiative, Emad Kurdi, AbbVie’s scientific office and governmental affairs director said, “At AbbVie, we strive to make a remarkable impact on patients’ lives in any and every way we can. When we heard about the blood drive, we wanted to provide all the support we could and responded immediately to the Center’s needs. By organizing our employees to give blood, we hope we can help save lives. I would urge anyone who is fit and able to give blood ahead of Ramadan to go along to their nearest blood donation center. It really can help save a life.”

 

Corporate Responsibility (CR) is an integral part of AbbVie’s culture. The team in Saudi Arabia has contributed over 1,300 hours of volunteering during the past four years.
