Blood drive organized at Scarborough mosque

Scarborough Mirror

A blood donation drive organized by a Muslim youth group attracted 66 people to a Scarborough mosque recently.

Organized by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association, the drive succeeded in collecting 53 units of blood, nearly 24 litres for Canadian Blood Services. Representatives of Canadian Blood Services were at the clinic to collect blood and provide literature on the importance of donating blood.

Co-organizer Usman Javed said he was pleased the blood drive, which took place on Nov. 4 at the Bait ul Afiyat mosque located at 255 Old Kingston Rd., attracted participation from all members of the community.

“Where some are afraid of donating blood others are very passionate and it is hopeful to see that many people consider the donation of blood as an act of charity and are willing to contribute,” said Javed.
