We are pleased to announce that due to overwhelming community interest, KAUST Health obtained an additional blood donation machine in December, 2018. This allows them to provide donors with twice the available registration slots to contribute their donation.


Donating blood is a great way to make a difference to someone in need. Whether you're a long-term donor or it's your first time, we encourage you to help save lives by participating in our regular blood donation days.

​Blood donation is a simple process:

  • Sign-in with your iqama or national ID

  • Get a mini-physical

  • Donate blood

  • Have a snack

The next blood donation day is on Monday, February 4 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the KAUST Health Emergency Room.

Registration is required. To register, please contact Patient Relations:

  • phone: 012 808 4088
  • email:

Kind regards

Craig Kershaw
Director (A), KAUST Health
