Give Blood - Save Lives!
Manlift Middle East strongly embraces social responsibility – and one way we do that is by organising activities that make a real positive impact in our community.
Because we feel ourselves to be part of the community, along with our own people and our clients, we want to make a difference wherever we happen to be working.Giving something back to the communities in which we work is one of the most important things we do. And in that spirit, Manlift organized a blood donation campaign on July 30 in our Abu Dhabi depot.
Manlift Middle East Abu Dhabi hosted the blood drive in association with the Abu Dhabi blood bank and the Red Crescent as part of Abu Dhabi’s ‘Year of Zayed’ celebrations. The aim of the drive was to raise awareness of the importance of voluntary blood donations, to promote the values of corporate and social responsibility, and to show our solidarity with the local community with a very tangible contribution. Indeed, when it comes to giving, the gift of blood is one that can make the difference between life and death for people in very real need.
More than 60 donors were invited to the event, including employees, Manlift clients, and suppliers. In addition, we extended invitations to neighboring businesses, and were pleased to have a number of their people join us.
At the July 30 event, we took the opportunity to also recognize valued staff members who have passed the notable milestone of ten years of service with Manlift Middle East in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. We were delighted to honor Robert Stephen and Rolando Arada with their 10th anniversary awards.
Manlift, which opened its doors in Dubai in 2007, is now entering its eleventh year of operations as a leading aerial work platform rental specialist. Social engagement has always been integral to our sense of responsibility as a company, and will continue to be for many years to come.
