Ahmedabad, May 24 (UNI) Country-wide blood donation camp organised by Financial Technologies (India) Limited in association with National Aids Control Organisation (NACO) and State Blood Transfusion Council (SBTC) has collected 480 units of blood.
The camp organised yesterday was held simultaneously at the four metros as well as at Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Bhubaneswar, Jaipur, Indore and Lucknow.
Underlining the importance of such corporate initiatives, Multi-Commodity Exchange of India Ltd MD Lamon Rutten said, ''Financial Technologies is delighted to be associated with NACO and SBTC for this great cause. Donating blood is our social duty, such initiatives should be a part of every responsible corporate to create awakening in the society. We are proud to have put forward our small contribution towards a better and healthy India.'' SBTC Director Sanjay Jadhav said with mass participation, we could go a long way in reducing critical shortage of blood at the blood banks. ''We are thankful to FT Group for joining hands with us for this noble cause and surprised to see the enthusiastic response.'' Employees across all centers turned up for the donation. The camp was run by professional doctors with utmost care and hygiene. It also aimed to spread awareness and dispel various myths on donating blood.
Financial Technologies has had a long history of active participation in social initiatives for the benefit of the community at large. In August last year, a blood donation camp organised by the Group in Mumbai, witnessed a record collection of 282 units of blood, which was the highest by any corporate in association with Rotary, he added.
