ALINMA Bank recently completed a successful week-long blood donation drive, organized in conjunction with King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center in Riyadh. The campaign ran from Dec.18 through 23 and was hosted by Alinma at its head office building. Support by Alinma staff was strong and the effort resulted in a significant contribution to the hospital, which relies upon the generosity of the public, and organizations such as Alinma Bank, to meet its blood donation targets.
Alinma Bank CEO Abdulmohsen Al-Fares emphasized the importance of giving back to the community.
“At Alinma Bank, we believe strongly in supporting the community,” said Al-Fares, “and when King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Center issued an urgent call for blood donations, we felt it was incumbent upon us to do our part.”
In recent years, Alinma bank has consistently supported blood donation efforts in the Kingdom, and in 2016, contributed to the campaign to support the medical needs of the Saudi Armed Forces engaged in the defense of the kingdom’s southern border.
