CDB organises blood donation campaign

Identifying that Sri Lanka’s National Blood Centre is in urgent need of emergency blood, Citizens Development Business Finance PLC (CDB) has come forward fullfil the national requirement by way of a blood donation campaigh.

Organised by the Welfare Committee of CDB along with the support of the Human Resources (HR) Division, an internal circular was issued calling all staff to join in the blood donation drive.

With the intention of working towards the greater good of the health of Sri Lanka’s citizens, over hundred and forty staffers joined in to support the cause. It is notable that this is the fifth time CDB arranged such a campaign, together with the support of Doctors, Nurses and other support staff from the National Blood Centre.

CDB Senior General Manager, HR and Administration Nayanthi Kodagoda said, “Human blood is a precious resource and an adequate supply of blood can only be assured through regular donations. At CDB, we felt that it was our responsibility to respond to the National Blood Centre’s call for donations during this period. Sri Lanka is one of the few countries where all blood and blood product needs are met through voluntary donations. We will continue to support such donation drives so that the country will be able to maintain this status for many more decades,”

CDB hopes to motivate regular blood donors to continue their altruistic actions and to also motivate people in good health who have never given blood to begin doing so.
