Al Bustan Centre and Residence, the popular hotel-apartment among tourists and businessmen in the heart of Dubai, organized a blood donation campaign as part of social responsibility and employee engagement through cause.
The campaign, under the Responsible Awareness Programme that is aimed at supporting various causes, was successfully held at the premises of Al Bustan Centre and Residence in June 2017, where the entire venue for the blood donation was set up by employees.
