In conjunction with the Community Footprints Programme of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, the ladies and gentlemen of Sharq Village and Spa organized a blood donation day in partnership with Hamad Medical Corporation.

The volunteers have made a commitment to actively support the community through their involvement of the In-Kind Donation as an important part of  The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company’s Community Footprints.

Said Carsten Fritz, General Manager, Sharq Village and Spa:

At the Ritz-Carlton our ladies and gentlemen play an important role in our endeavor to benefit our community. Without employee involvement, our outreach efforts would not be nearly as successful.

The Sharq Village and Spa’s Blood Donation took place at the hotel on Sunday, October 21, 2012 where 75 employees, and some loyal guests as well, took the initiative to participate and make a lasting contribution in the Blood Donation for Hamad Medical Corporation.

Hamad Medical Corporation is a premier non-profit health care provider in Doha, Qatar. Established by Emiri decree in 1979, the Corporation manages four highly specialised hospitals: Hamad General Hospital, Rumailah Hospital, Women’s Hospital, Psychiatric Hospital and the Primary Health Care Centers.

  • Hunger and Poverty Relief: providing products and services to those in need
  • Education and Development: supporting disadvantaged children and youth
  • Environmental Conservation: conserving natural resources
