Blood Camp – Inspiring lifesaving generosity

Alia takes an important step toward developing compassion and selflessness each year with its annual blood camp. This year, on June 17, Alia conducted the 9th blood camp in collaboration with Maldivian Blood Services. The primary objective of this project is not only to successfully carry out a blood donation drive but also to raise awareness about the critical importance of donating blood, particularly among the younger generation. The event aims to remind everyone that we possess the power to save lives through a simple act of blood donation. By facilitating a platform for donating blood conveniently, Alia and Maldivian Blood Services aspire to emphasize the vital role each individual can play in contributing to the welfare of the community.

Within this event, donors had the opportunity to check their eligibility for blood donation, which includes considerations such as age, weight, general health, and lifestyle. This process ensures that those who are physically able to donate can do so safely and comfortably. Candidates aged 18 and above who voluntarily express the need to donate, contribute to fostering a generation that values compassion and actively seeks chances to support others.

The importance of blood donation cannot be understated, as it serves as a lifeline in various critical situations. Accidents, surgical procedures, complications during childbirth, and cases of blood deficiency all highlight the indispensable nature of readily available blood supplies. Maintaining an adequate stock of blood is not just a convenience; it’s a necessity that directly impacts the chances of survival for those in need. The swift availability of the required blood can often be the difference between life and death.

However, securing a sufficient supply of blood in the Maldives has proven to be challenging. The Maldivian Blood Bank is unable to cater to the increasing demand for blood, making it essential for individuals to step forward and make a difference. One of the major hurdles is the low number of first-time blood donors. This can be attributed to a lack of awareness and misconceptions about donation. Alia Blood Camp aims to tackle this issue by educating and motivating people, especially the youth, to contribute to this noble cause.

With its annual blood camp, Alia not only provides a platform for blood donation but also strives to create a substantial impact by encouraging more people to become regular blood donors. The success of such a campaign relies on the collective efforts of the community, as every drop donated contributes to a healthier and safer society. By working together with the Maldivian Blood Services and raising awareness about the critical role blood donation plays in saving lives, Alia’s initiative exemplifies the power of unity and compassion in creating a brighter future for all.

Blood Camp 2019

On the occasion of World Blood Donor’s Day, Alia Investments Pvt Ltd, in collaboration with Maldives Blood Society (MBS), held their annual Blood Donation camp on 15th June 2019 at Maldives Art Gallery. This camp was the 05th consecutive year Alia organized this event, as a part of their CSR initiative.

This year’s event was far more vibrant than the previous years, with a specific target group. The main aim of this year’s blood donation camp was to encourage the young generation to partake in this noble cause and introduce a new batch of fresh and new blood donors into the society who would be regular donors in the years to come.

The camp was inaugurated by Minister of Health, Mr. Abdulla Ameen along with representatives from Alia Investment and Maldives Blood Society. Certificates were distributed to organizations who took initiatives to arrange such camps in association with MBS in the previous years. In addition to this, the most regular donors of the previous year was recognized and a special certificate of recognition was presented to them.

This blood donation camp successfully reached the target of 200+ donors in one day especially a huge participation from schools/college/university students.
