The Royal Opera House Muscat will hold its 4th Annual Blood Donation Campaign under the slogan of “Donating means a few minutes to you, But a lifetime to somebody else’ on Tuesday, 7th February 2017 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm at the South Porch Hall (Southern Entrance at ROHM)

Aiming to help patients in need by increasing the blood supply and raising awareness about the ongoing need for blood donors, the Royal Opera House Muscat underlines its mission in supporting the community.

It is open to the public, in addition to staff members who are welcome to contribute in this generous act of giving the gift of life and helping the needs of others. The volunteers will be tested by the medical team who will check the haemoglobin levels, blood pressure, blood type and other criteria needed in order to meet the conditions for donating blood.

Donating blood is a simple thing to do, but it can make a big difference in the lives of others. The donation process may take a few minutes of your time, but the enduring impact is larger than expected on the receiver of the donated blood.

In addition, blood donation is one of the ways to maintain self health and highly recommended by the medical advisors, therefore blood donors are able to donate blood several times a year and can rest assured it will have a positive effect on their health.

The Royal Opera House Muscat successfully launched its first blood donation campaign in 2014, when it witnessed many generous donors from different nationalities and ages that supported those in need of blood. The safe transfusion of blood and blood products helps save millions of lives every year. It can help patients suffering from life-threatening conditions live longer and with better quality of life, as well as supporting complex medical and surgical procedures. It also has an essential, life-saving role in road accidents, maternal and child care and in the event of man-made or natural disasters.

Appreciating donors’ support in this noble goal, they will be granted with up-to (70%) discount vouchers on TWO tickets for the 5th Season Programme 2016-2017 at Royal Opera House Muscat as an appreciation of their kind contribution.
