Jubail, Jul 15: Karnataka Cultural Foundation (KCF), an expatriate platform of Kannadigas (people from the south Indian state of Karnataka) has been active in carrying out various humanitarian and relief services for expatriates especially during health emergencies, death etc. This time, KCF volunteers in Jubail turned over a new leaf by donating blood in a big way during a crucial need.
The blood donor team of Karnataka Cultural Foundation is very active in Dammam and various provinces of Saudi Arabia by organising and lending a helping hand to hospitals whenever there is an urgent blood requirement. The young donors' team has considered it one of the greatest humanitarian services and gifts a human being can offer to another human being.
The Jubail KCF relief team has been promptly donating blood to patients over the years. This time, there was an immediate necessity for O negative blood which is rare among Asians. When notified about the blood requirement, KCF immediately alerted fellow expatriates and arranged people with O negative blood group to respond to the needy situation.
The family which was benefitted from this humanitarian gesture thanked the team profusely. Jubail General Hospital, the centre where blood was donated, organised a felicitation ceremony to honour Karnataka Cultural Foundation with an appreciation certificate. Abdurrasheed Saqafi, president of KCF Dammam zone, Basha Gangavali, convener relief wing KCF Dammam zone and Naufal Mulky, leader of Jubail sector relief wing were present during the felicitation ceremony. KCF Dammam zone too praised the timely effort of the Jubail KCF team in this regard.
