Dubai: For the seventh consecutive year, the Fortune Group of Hotels, hotel owned by businessman, and Karnataka NRIs Committe, UAE President Praveen Shetty successfully held its seventh consecutive blood donation camp at the Fortune Atrium Hotel here. Praveen Shetty runs a blood donation campaign in collaboration with Fortune Group hotel staff each year to mark the wedding anniversary of his parents Narayana Shetty and Sarojini.
Speaking to media persons, Shetty who is constantly campaigning about the importance of donating blood said, "Our body reproduces blood within 24 hours if donated, but once a life perishes it does not come back, so all of us need to be self-motivated and donate life by giving blood." In times of Corona, the blood is scarcely available at the Blood Bank around the world, and therefore our camp has been organised following strict Covid norms, he added.
Organisers from the hotel, staff Sandesh and Rakesh Shetty, representatives of Dubail Health Authority, NRI committe members Hidayat Adoor, Yashwant Karkera, Imran Khan Yermal, and Balakrishna were present on the occasion.
