Blood donation is a noble humanitarian act that contributes to the saving the lives of thousands of patients who are in desperate need of blood transfusions.   At the same time, it does not cause any harm to the health of the donor.  Senior officials and employees of the IA took part in the Donation Blood Campaign, which was organized in coordination with the Ministry of Health.

V.   Participation in the Social Initiatives of Government and Local Agencies:

 

The Authority was keen to participate in many social responsibility initiatives launched by government and local agencies in the UAE, such as: Conference on Social Responsibility of the Gulf Cooperation Council, in addition to supporting the Traffic Campaign Initiative launched by the Traffic Coordination General Directorate of the Interior Ministry under the slogan "Watch for Pedestrian Safety".  The participation in this initiative was through the dissemination of the campaign slogan in the websites and social networking pages of the IA.

The participation of the Insurance Authority in this campaign came out of its permanent endeavor to raise the level of insurance awareness and promote the culture of traffic safety among community groups and awareness of the importance of adhering to the traffic rules and road safety behavior; and to reduce traffic accidents procedures on the basis of the direct relationship between insurance and traffic safety.
