Sheikh Hamdan tweets blood donor appeal
DUBAI // Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, the Crown Prince of Dubai, has appealed to residents to donate blood by posting photographs of himself giving blood on his Twitter account.
“There is nothing more precious than my UAE,” tweeted Sheikh Hamdan on Tuesday. He urged his 876,000 followers to join the campaign at Global Village as part of National Day celebrations.
My Blood for My UAE is being conducted near Gate No 3 at the fair and ends on Wednesday evening.
“I think donating blood is a noble way to celebrate this day,” said Sheikh Hamdan in an earlier media interview posted on his website, where he described it as an important contribution to society. “Donating blood is the best present for our country. It is a way for citizens and residents to express their love. Donating blood is the most precious gift that humans can give each other.
“It is a gift that can save lives and give a new lease of life to many persons in need.”
