IMO News Service

Riyadh: Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamaath (TNTJ), a social organization based in South Indian state of Tamil Nadu, recently organized a blood donation camp at KFMC Riyadh in Saudi Arabia.

The Riyadh division of TNTJ teamed up again with King Fahad Medical City Hospital (KFMC) and organized a major blood donation campaign at KFMC Blood bank in Riyadh on 28th June 2013. Almost 125 liters of blood was collected from around 283 donors, while a large number of expatriates mostly from Tamil speaking community from India pledged to donate on a regular basis.

Explaining the purpose of such a campaign, Mohamed Maheen, Spokesperson of this campaign for TNTJ, said that a good number of Umrah pilgrims who suddenly fall ill or meet with accidents require blood and this contribution will go long way in helping such section of the pilgrims. Arrangements will be made with the hospital to dispatch the collection to be sent to blood banks in Makkah.

Riyadh TNTJ is well known in hospital circles not only for conducting campaigns but also for its frequent blood donations on urgent basis.

Last week, Riyadh province TNTJ has conducted a mobile blood donation campaign teaming up with Olayya branch of TNTJ for five days where around 107 units of blood were donated by voluntary donors of various nationalities including Saudis.

"This is 24th such blood drive of this nature for Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamaath (TNTJ) - Riyadh province. Nearly 333 donors participated in previous Hajj campaign which held last year," said Abdur Rahman Navlak, Secretary TNTJ Riyadh. “The noble act of donating blood will not only give a new lease of life to many, it also heightens our common sense of social responsibility by serving the humanitarian and social needs of our local communities,” he added.

The group maintains to be the number one organization in blood donation in Tamil Nadu and most of the GCC countries. Tamil Nadu Government has awarded a number of awards appreciating its social concern to serve humanity.
