Access Bank staff have organised a blood donation exercise in partnership with the Rotary Club of Ring Road and the National Blood Bank Service.
The exercise, which forms part of the Bank’s Employee Volunteering Programme (EVP), was aimed at raising awareness about the importance of blood donation and helping to save lives.
Held at the car park of the bank’s newly refurbished head office in Accra, the exercise witnessed a high turnout, with over 300 staff and members of the general public participating.
Speaking on the partnership to support the blood bank, the Project Coordinator of the Employee Volunteering Group, Esinam Kpodo expressed appreciation to partners, and emphasized the need for the public to avail themselves for such exercises to donate and support health facilities.
She said: “We are encouraged that our call to help save lives was met with so much enthusiasm. It only goes to show that with the right resources and willingness, we will be able to demystify the notions surrounding blood donation.”
Over the past three months, employees of Access Bank in other locations, have also demonstrated their volunteering spirit by executing various projects across the country.
The projects have been streamlined to help Ghana achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals specifically in the areas of health and well-being, quality education, sanitation and clean water.
