On the occasion of World Blood Donor Day, staff at the King Abd Alaziz University Hospital Blood Transfusion Services wanted to show how much they cared about providing safe blood to patients by thanking voluntary blood donors for their continuous help and support. On 14 June, a celebratory party was held for all voluntary donors. They were presented with small gifts and certificates of thanks. A word of thanks went also to the university colleges and their students who provide many voluntary blood donors. The event was covered by the press and was broadcast on television.
