 Massive Blood Donation Drive by HDFC Bank Across India

HDFC Bank is organizing a nationwide Blood Donation Campaign in India on Friday, December 9, 2011. People in 521 Indian cities will be able to donate blood at over 679 blood donation camps from 0900 hrs to 1700 hrs in one of the India's biggest single-day blood donation campaigns where individual donors, including many Bank executives, are expected to donate blood. The Bank has tied up with major hospitals and blood banks across these cities for technical assistance.

"Blood is precious. It feels good to know that every year more and more people are joining this noble cause. Every minute of every day, someone needs blood. That blood can only come from a volunteer donor, a person like you and me, makes it all the more precious. There is no substitute for your donation," said Mr. Bhavesh Zaveri, Country Head, Operations, HDFC Bank. "The problem is more acute in our country where the gap between demand and supply of blood is acute and growing. Please join us in our mission to maintain safe and stable blood supply by making your appointment to donate blood on Friday." More details are available on www.hdfcbank.com.

This is HDFC Bank's fifth such annual blood donation camp. The Bank started this initiative in 2007 when over 4000 volunteers came forward for a national cause. Since then the camp has grown in size and stature. In the very first year, over 4000 units of blood were collected. Since then, the quantum of collection had jumped six-fold to touch over 25,500 units last year.
