The Tender Board organized a blood donation campaign for the second year in cooperation with the Department of Blood Banks Services at the Ministry of Health. The campaign was decided to be held in October to coincide with Women's Day and the Omani Youth Day in a move aimed at raising awareness among young people about the importance of volunteering and its role in building a society with strong social ties.
