On 22nd January, 2020 Sustainability Development Committee (SDC) organized blood donation camp for the 1st time at the IMT Dubai Campus in coordination with Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and Dubai International Academic City (DIAC). The Blood Donation Camp started well on time at 10AM in the Lounge. SDC team helped in making all the arrangements with the DHA also, there were 2-3 members always present at the venue to help the volunteer with the process. Students, Faculty and staff all came for blood donation in good spirit. A survey from DHA regarding health condition, medication or any disease was filled by every volunteer before proceeding with the health check-up process. After thorough check-up only volunteers were allowed to donate blood.
Nearly 60 donors participated for the noble cause. A survey was also taken with the donors by DHA about their satisfaction level in which most of the donors were highly satisfied the Process and whole experience. All the donors were provided with the manual instructing the precautions to be taken for few hours after Donation. Refreshment was also provided to every donor after the donation.
A few donors were also denied from donating blood by the Doctors because they visited India within 1 month and according to doctors India is a “Malaria” endemic country and the virus of malaria stays in the body for almost a month and it can’t be traced while testing the blood samples so, some volunteers were denied from donating. But we got a decent number of donors and DHA authorities were also satisfied with the number, when asked about their experience at IMT and they were ready to conduct Blood Donation Camp again in future. Overall the event was very successful.
Special Thanks to Mr. Nirmish, IMT Staff and whole SDC team members for their coordination in making the event successful.
These words from one of our students echoed through the hearts of everyone last Thursday, when we celebrated Onam in IMT Dubai. Just like the harvest that Onam marks, the seeds of togetherness were also planted. The entire student body come together to celebrate the festival making it a day filled with cultural appreciation and fun games.
Hearty congratulations to all the winners and a big thank you to the Social and Cultural Committee and the Sports Committee for organising such an outstanding event.
The friendly football match that happened yesterday was definitely a stress buster for all of us. The exchange students, few faculties and staff joined us to play the game which made the whole thing much more fun! The friendly football match was followed by a Pizza Party arranged by our university.
