In commemoration of its 55th anniversary, PT DAHANA (Persero) collaborated with the Indonesian Red Cross (PMI) of Subang Regency for a blood donation program. The event which is part of the DAHANA CSR Week series was given at Bale DAHANA, Subang, October 13, 2021.
Dozens of DAHANA employees donated their blood through Subang’s Indonesian Red Cross. The employee's blood donation activity has been the Company’s tradition. According to DAHANA's President Director, Wildan Widarman, this activity is a form of employee concern for people in need of blood.
With regards to the blood donation program, Mr Widarman expressed his gratitude and appreciation for his employees who are willing to donate blood. Blood donation is not only good for donors as it can help reduce the risk of heart disease, cholesterol, cancer, burn calories, make the mind more stable and increase the production of red blood cells, it is also a practice of humanitarian solidarity.
"Thanks to DAHANA's employees who have been willing to donate blood in observance of 2021 DAHANA CSR Week. Every drop of blood that we donate means a lot to our brothers and sisters in need,” said Mr Widarman.
Mr Widarman also hopes that this DAHANA blood donation activity can help maintain the stock of blood bags at Subang Red Cross. Those in need of blood can conveniently get access to the stock of blood available at the Subang Regency Red Cross.
Before donating blood, employees go through several screenings to ensure that potential donors meet the general requirements for blood donation. Blood donation is not possible for people with a history of special diseases such as lung disease, heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, suffering from or have suffered from Hepatitis B or C and for those with the doctor’s advice due to a particular health issues.
Once the screenings are completed, blood is taken from the donors and kept in the blood storage box belonging to Subang Regency Red Cross and made available for people in need.
