The Ministry of Economy and Commerce (MEC), in co-operation with the Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), organised yesterday a campaign to raise awareness about the importance of organ donation in a bid to motivate and encourage employees to donate.
The initiative is part of the Ministry’s community outreach programme and “reflects its humanitarian values in line with a strategic plan to achieve Qatar National Vision 2030, which focuses on citizens as pillars for sustainable human development”, the MEC has said in a statement.
The campaign aims to educate the public on the importance of organ donation and its contribution to saving the lives of thousands of patients.
It also provides potential donors with necessary information on registration procedures.
Participants of the campaign welcomed the initiative and were made aware of the importance of donating organs, especially since this humanitarian action may contribute to saving the lives of patients and relieving their suffering while instilling the values of co-operation and solidarity in society, the statement adds.
