The Radisson Blu Hotel Muscat and Park Inn by Radisson Hotel, Muscat teamed up in a collective effort to support the local blood donation drive conducted by the Ministry of Health. 35 units of blood were collected which would contribute towards the resources required and used in emergency medical situations and for the victims of accidents.

Both hotels are part of the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group and have been regular contributors to the Ministry’s Department of Blood Services.  Employees took time out from their busy work schedules at the hotel to contribute to the blood camp. The deputed blood bank team collected information and screened viable donors.

“It is not a exaggeration to say that by donating blood one may have saved another human beings life! As healthy individuals we need to have a sense of responsibility towards society and should do our part to support others in need, ” said Marius Wolmarans, General Manager of the Radisson Blu Hotel, Muscat. Rabih Zein, General Manager of the Park Inn by Radisson Muscat added,” When we put our efforts together the result is a strong synergy and a good result. The employees from both hotels have been enthusiastic and willing – they are the unmentioned heroes in an random recipient’s life.”

Blood donation is one of the many activities undertaken by both hotels as part of ‘Responsible Business’ planned projects throughout the year. The Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group to which the brands belong, encourages and supports the individual Rezidor Hotels to be very active in their respective local communities.
