Tata Power organises blood donation drive in Mumbai

Collected 101 units of blood

Mumbai: Insufficient volume of transfusable blood is one of the biggest medical concerns in the country today. Understanding this imbalance, and aiming to contribute towards the health and wellness of the community at large, Tata Power, India’s largest integrated power company, organised a blood donation drive in Mumbai. The drive was organised on the occasion of Tata Volunteering Week (TVW) 8 in collaboration with Tata Memorial Hospital.

The objective of this initiative was to collaborate on social causes, and work together towards providing quality health care facilities to its communities. The company employees and contract workers volunteered enthusiastically and worked in conjunction with the medical teams to make the camp a major success. The initiative received an overwhelming response and 101 units of blood were collected.

Speaking about the initiative, Ashok Sethi, executive director and COO, Tata Power, said, “In line with the vision of Jamsetji N Tata, we are very proud to have organised an initiative that will immensely benefit hundreds during dire medical emergencies. Tata Power has always been a consistent front-runner in setting up such crucial health camps, and it gives me great pleasure to see our employees enthusiastically supporting such causes, and demonstrating their strong sense of social responsibility. The active participation of our employees is a testimonial that we are always enthusiastic to support such causes and do our bit to make our society a better place to live.”

Camps such as this give the employees of Tata Power an opportunity to engage in philanthropic activities and, therefore, contribute substantially towards the well-being of the community. To make the blood donation drive a success, the initiative also saw participation from the senior leaders of the organisation.
