The Triple Effect team in AAST organised blood donation campaigns at the British University, engineering and business, Arab Academy for Science and Technology and the Egyptian Language School. There was a blood donation booth in each of these institutes on specific days and spread awareness about blood donation. The donation van was standing alongside so that the people could donate blood immediately. A lot of biases and prejudices that people had about blood donation were cleared and they appreciated the effort. While some people were really against the idea initially, after the awareness session, they supported the cause either directly or indirectly. Approximately 200+ blood bags were collected during the campaigns in these universities.
At the Egyptian Language School, the teachers, management faculty and staff were informed about blood donation and they donated blood as well. The school children were really excited and curious about the entire process. They helped the entire team with the campaigning and setting up the booth as well. A fact that makes as feel confident that the kids are the hope of the future solution!
