Staff at InterContinental Doha The City Donate Rare Blood Types to HMC

As part of the hotel’s corporate social responsibility programme, colleagues at InterContinental Hotel Doha The City started the new year helping to save lives by donating blood to the Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) Blood Donation Unit.

For this initiative – the fourth donation in the hotel’s on-going Blood Donation Campaign since the property opened in 2012 – 35 colleagues volunteered to donate blood. Sales Manager Malick Njie who has A negative blood and Assistant Sales Manager Ashir Ghouse who has AB positive blood were especially compelled to donate as their blood types are so rare. Ghouse said:

I am a regular donor because I know that AB positive blood is very valuable as only about 3% of the population have the same type.’
