Abu Dhabi : ODIA SAMAJ ABU DHABI (OSA) is known for its philanthropic activities in and across the borders of UAE. The expat Odia community, i.e. the OSA family got together and decided to do something noble to show their gratitude for the hospitality & adulation that they have received in their adopted home, UAE. What better way to give back than to organize a blood donation camp for a noble cause during the onslaught of the coronavirus pandemic that continues to ravage the world and humanity. So OSA members organized the blood donation camp at Abu Dhabi Blood Bank – SEHA, Khailidiya and their family members played a role in its grand success. 110 members of Odia Samaj Abu Dhabi participated in this noble initiative and donated blood. Some of the members also donated plasma and platelets. The local authority as well as the Blood bank officials appreciated this sincere and selfless effort of Odia Samal Abu Dhabi, especially during this pandemic. Abu Dhabi Blood Bank and Odia Samaj Abu Dhabi issued certificates to all the donors as a token of their noble effort.
