Rosabon Financial Services and Concept Nova will join the rest of the world to celebrate the World Blood Donor Day tomorrow by sensitizing the public on the benefits and needs to donate safe blood.
The event holds on June 14 every year. As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), staff members of the firms would join and encourage members of the public to donate blood.The companies with over two decades of experience are expected to achieve the feat yearly by partnering with the Lagos State Blood Transfusion Committee of the state Ministry of Health.
It provides the necessary medical apparatus to screen volunteers and ensure that they are medically fit and free from transmittable diseases through blood transfusion before they could donate blood.The firms said in a statement that: “The Lagos State Blood Transfusion Committee will also be in charge of this year’s blood donation exercise, which will be held at the Island Maternity Hospital.
“The theme of this year’s World Blood Donor Day campaign: Blood Donation as an Action of Solidarity, comes with the slogan: Be There For Someone Else. Give Blood. Share Life by the World Health Organisation (WHO).”
