(Free Food in UAE)As part of the initiative, a restaurant in Karama and Discovery Gardens is offering free meals to blood donors through 2022. Yummy Dosa of Dubai wanted to show its appreciation for the selfless act of blood donors who have helped save countless lives.
MD Jugal Parekh, director of Yummy Dosa restaurant, donates blood yearly and says he is doing his part to raise awareness of the importance of voluntary blood donations and their role in saving lives and enhancing community solidarity.
In exchange for proof that a blood donor came to Yummy Dosa within a week of donating blood, Parekh is offering a free meal of any amount.
A friend of Parekh’s was experiencing heavy bleeding after an accident. He cannot locate matching blood for his friend. “We had to beg people for blood donations and had to look for blood groups in other hospitals. That day, I understood that donation costs nothing, but it could mean the difference between life and death for someone,” said Parekh. “We want to honor the UAE residents who have contributed to the cause,” Parekh said, adding that they will ring a bell in their honour.
