Calamatta Cuschieri hosts second successful blood drive

Calamatta Cuschieri, one of Malta’s leading financial services firms hosted its second blood donation drive in collaboration with the National Blood Transfusion Service on Thursday 2 April.

An encouraging number of Calamatta Cuschieri’s staff donated blood, staff members from Camilleri Preziosi Advocates and the general public also joined in this initiative.

The campaign forms part of the Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities, which aim to give back to the community as well as help people in need. Mr. Alan Cuschieri, Co-CEO at Calamatta Cuschieri said “Approximately 60 units of blood are needed on a daily basis, thus every volunteer counts. Calamatta Cuschieri firmly believes in the importance of CSR and the company will be expanding on other initiatives such as the Investing in Nature Campaign and the Walk for Cancer campaign.”

A normal blood donation gives one unit of blood and people who have suffered great blood loss may require about 50 units. Thus one or two serious accidents are often enough to drain blood stocks and this confirms the great importance of having satisfactory blood stocks at all times.

Persons interested to donate blood are invited to contact the National Blood Transfusion Service on 220 66 201, 79307307 or www.facebook.com/bloodmalta.
