Online PR News – 25-July-2014 – Bengaluru – Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) forms an integral part of the Indiabulls Housing Finance Limited (IBHFL) philosophy. The company values the importance of CSR activities for the community at large, apart from fulfilling the needs of home seekers around the country. There is a vast shortage of blood in our country and the need for blood donors has been ever increasing. To embrace this social need, IBHFL organised a Blood Donation Drive on 18th July 2014 at the Richmond Road Branch of our Bengaluru office.
This drive was organized in association with TOUCH NGO. The awareness for the drive was spread through mailers circulated to all Bengaluru IBHFL employees. It was followed up with posters, banners and standees being put up outside the branch & in surrounding areas. The employees were also encouraged to bring their friends and family for the blood donation drive.
The drive was inaugurated by Mr.Bipin Gopalkrishna, Director General of Police and attended by the Chief Guests, Mr.N A Haris- Member of Legislative assembly, Karnataka Government and Eminent Businessman, Mr.Shridhar R - President Press Club of Bengaluru and Chief Editor of the Sun TV group at Bengaluru, Mr.Sadashiv Shenoy - Entertainment Bureau Chief of BTV and Press Club General Secretary, Mr.H.V.Kiran - Crime Bureau Chief of TV9 group and Vice President of Press Club of Bengaluru who encouraged everyone to donate blood.
Mr. Vishwas Shetty, Zonal Business Head, South IBHFL, shared his thoughts on the activity and said that “You never know fulfilment till you work on a cause that makes a difference to someone’s life. Every few seconds, someone in India needs a life-saving blood transfusion. There is no substitute for blood. Therefore, hospitals rely on healthy adults to donate blood. Today, our staff at IBHFL has taken a step towards that direction and their contribution through this blood donation has made a difference and saved lives.”
Blood donation drive organised by IBHFL in association with TOUCH NGO was a great success with over 103 people participating in the drive and 85 people donating blood. The activity was planned in a way that made a serious topic like blood donation a fun and interesting event. All donors received a Thank You card and certificate. They posed for the camera and their good deed was uploaded on the Indiabulls Home Loan, Facebook page.
