Donate blood- save lives

DKSH Cambodia continues its well-established and successful blood donation campaign to support the National Blood Transfusion Center.

Phnom Penh, Cambodia, February 22, 2021 – Each year since 2018, DKSH Cambodia has organized a blood donation campaign under a different motto. This year’s initiative had the slogan “A blood donor is a life saver”. The event was held at DKSH’s main office in Phnom Penh in the presence of Dr. Sok Po, Director of National Blood Transfusion Center, other representatives, the DKSH Cambodia management team and many employees.

 

DKSH has been rooted in Asia for more than 150 years, and a strong commitment to the local communities has always been an integral part of its business. In Cambodia, DKSH has been present since the beginning of the 1950s. Today, it is one of the leading Market Expansion Services providers in the country. Blood donation is in line with DKSH’s purpose of enriching people’s lives and its social responsibility, as it is a way of deeply caring for people and supporting them in overcoming health problems.

 

Sok Po, Director of the National Blood Transfusion Center, commented: “Stocks at the National Blood Transfusion Center (NBTC) are critically low and hundreds of units short of meeting demand, leading management at the center to publicly appeal for people to come forward and help restore the depleted reserves. We are highly appreciative of DKSH Cambodia for their continuous support of our blood donation campaign – even in times of COVID-19. By encouraging their employees to join this positive practice they help us spread love and save lives.”

 

Bishan Gautam, Head Country Management, DKSH Cambodia, said: “This is the fourth time that we have conducted a blood donation campaign at DKSH Cambodia. Blood donation is a noble cause and every blood donor has shown concern and contributed to the improvement of the community. We sincerely thank all our employees who contributed to this event. Blood donors are life savers for those in need.”

 

The Cambodia National Blood Transfusion Center also presented DKSH Cambodia with its “Certificate of Appreciation” for hearty activities and contribution to society.
