In the framework of corporate responsibility towards the communities in need, for the third consecutive year, Vodafone Albania in cooperation with Red Cross, organized blood donation day for the thalassemic children under the slogan ”From me to you- a gift for life.”
Currently Albania counts 500 patients. In order to survive these people need:
• A flacon of blood per month.
• This vital liquid is essential for them. We can’t produce it. It can be provided only by donation.
Sixty Vodafone Albania employees together with their relatives donated blood to save these children lives.
Blood is vital for thalassemic children lives. With 400 ml of blood we save one child live, and with the same amount we can save 3 children lives that do need elements of 400 ml blood.
Vodafone Albania General Manager, Mr. Thomas Papaspyrou took this opportunity to express his gratitude to all Vodafone employees for such a humane act. “The work of saving lives truly begins with people like you, because together we can save thalassemic children’s lives that need regular blood transfusions to live. From me to you – a gift for life” blood donation event, organized by Vodafone Albania, should also serve as an appeal for the entire business community, to show their social responsibility as we do,” stated Mr. Papaspyrou.
