Under the sponsorship of His Excellency Dr. Farhan Bin Khalaf Al-Enzi, the Vice Dean of the Preparatory Year and Supportive Studies and on behalf of the Dean of the Preparatory Year and Supportive Studies Dr. Moqbil Bin Salem Al-Enzi, the Voluntary Blood Donation campaign was inaugurated at the Arar Campus starting on Tuesday, 5 -7-1437h at 12:30 pm in the lobby of Deanship of the Preparatory Year and Supportive Studies. The campaign was a result of cooperative efforts between the Student Activities Unit, the Student Counselling Unit at the Deanship of the Preparatory Year and Supportive Studies, and the blood bank laboratory of Arar Central Hospital. The campaign continued until Thursday evening, 7-7-1437h. His Excellency Dr. Nasser Bin Saleh Al-Rwaili, the Assistant Director of Medical Services of the Northern Border Province and Mr. Saud Bin Mahrab Al-Rwaili, the manager of laboratories in the Northern Border Province attended the opening ceremony.

The Vice Dean of the Preparatory Year and Supportive Studies met the  students who participated in the campaign and assured that blood donation is a noble and humanitarian duty because it contributes to saving the lives of thousands of patients who are in need of blood donations. He thanked those in charge of the campaign for their valuable efforts.

The campaign aimed to developing the students' sense of humanitarianism through donating blood to save lives. Further, this work is a religious work recommended by Allah and His Messenger. Allah says in the Quran: "And whatever good you put forward for yourselves - you will find it with Allah . It is better and greater in reward" (Almuzammil. 20). Prophet PBUH said those who help others in plight and miseries, God will help and reward them.

The Campaign got a good response and participation from students of the Preparatory Year and Supportive Studies, faculty and staff members.

Mr. Mohammed Bin Twairesh Al-Enzi and Yaser Ben Ali Al-Areni supervised the campaign.

The total number of donors was 43
