Female students at University College in Qunfudah donate blood to Southern Borderline heroes

As part of the “How to be a Role Model” initiative, the University College for girls in Al-Qunfudah organized on Sunday 6/6/1428H the first of its kind blood donation campaign for women in the province under the slogan “Southern Borderline Sisters.” 

The donation campaign was organized under the auspices of Qunfudhah University College Dean Dr. Yassin Al-Zubaidi with the supervision and follow-up of Vice Dean Dr. Nowayr Bagaber in coordination with College of Medicine Vice-Dean Dr. Nawal al-Hazmi and in tandem with Al-Qunfudah Health Affairs Directorate represented by the Laboratories Department, Blood Bank and Al-Qunfudah Public Hospital as well as the Sapheno society represented by student Madaya al-Omari.

The initiative is inspired by the hadith of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him in which he said: "The believers in their mutual kindness, compassion and sympathy are just like one body. When one of the limbs suffers, the whole body responds to it with wakefulness and fever."

The campaign has been well received by the faculty and students of the University College who donated blood to the heroes of the Southern Borderline.

At the conclusion of the campaign, the University College thanked Dean Dr. Al-Zubaidi for allowing such an event to be organized and also thanked the Health Affairs Directorate, the Laboratories Department, the Blood Bank and Al-Qunfudah Public Hospital for their distinguished efforts during the course of the campaign, praying Allah the Almighty to grant victory to our heroic soldiers.
