Uber is offering free rides to blood donors in Dubai

It’s part of the ‘Giving Is In Your Blood’ campaign….

During Ramadan, the number of blood donations across the Middle East drops significantly while demand remains just as high as ever.

With the Holy Month now officially over, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) has put the call out for its latest blood drive dubbed ‘Giving Is In Your Blood’.

Uber is looking to make things a little easier for those interested in donating blood in Dubai by offering free trips to and from donation centres via its ride-hailing app.

The joint initiative between Uber, Facebook and the IFRC actually kicked off on June 14 as part of World Blood Donor Day and will continue to run until Sunday, June 24.

Users just need to use the promo code IFRCDubai when requesting an Uber to the nearest blood donation clinic and will have the entire trip comped.
