JBM Group organises its 3rd Blood Donation Camp for Thalassaemic Children
Gurugram: As part of the ongoing blood donation drive initiated by JBM Group last month, the company organized its 3rd blood donation camp at its plant in Gurugram today. 150 units of blood was donated by JBM employees which took the total tally to over 500 units of blood by way of the 3 such camps in less than a month. JBM Group’s CSR arm, Neel Foundation, has resolved to donate over 3500 units of blood this year to support the noble cause of helping Thalassaemic children.
The event was graced by Mr. Deepak Saharan, IPS, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Gurugram west, who was also the Chief Guest of the event. On the occasion of the 75th Independence Day of India, JBM Group had signed an MoU with the Indian Red Cross Society to conduct 25 blood donation camps across its plants pan India this year. Each blood donation camp targets a minimum of 150 units per camp.
Today’s event witnessed enthusiastic participation from JBM Group’s employees, their families and friends, who came forward to contribute to this noble cause. Each donor went through detailed medical screening and blood investigations like testing for Haemoglobin, blood group, weight measurement, etc. before blood donation. The camp successfully created awareness about blood donation, its need and social responsibility among different stakeholders of the society.
Thalassemia is a serious inherited blood disorder. A child suffering from such a disease requires one unit of blood every two weeks. Survival of a Thalassemia major depends upon repeated life-long blood transfusions and iron chelation. As red blood cell transfusion is the most common treatment, the blood banks play a pivotal role in this. Employees of JBM Group and their families have vowed to participate in these camps and donate blood to support the cause and help these children.
As an essential part of the JBM Group’s value ecosystem, the organisation looks forward to maintaining the highest standards towards enhancing the health and safety of its employees and communities as well as preserving and protecting the environment. The group executes a large gamut of activities through its corporate social responsibility arm - Neel Foundation. The organization believes in enriching the quality of life of the community and prevails to preserve its ecological balance as well as its cultural heritage.
