The scope of this initiative is to make a contribution in ensuring that those in need of a blood transfusion will have a sustainable and safe blood supply readily available.
The National Blood Transfusion Unit, located in front of St. Luke’s Hospital, is an organisation which “strives to provide a sustainable safe blood supply in the Maltese Islands.” The services being offered by the organisation include the counselling to donors, basic biochemical screening, and the implementation of awareness campaigns about the importance of blood donations.
MAPFRE Middlesea CEO Felipe Navarro, who also participated in this initiative, said “I recognise the importance of these blood donations as well as the impact which they can have on a significant number of individuals, and thus, I am very much glad to support this initiative.” Both entities from MAPFRE Group will continue to express their commitment to society by donating with the purpose of increasing national blood reserves, as well as to raise awareness on the importance of this life-saving action.
This campaign forms part of MAPFRE Group’s corporate volunteering initiatives which are implemented through Fundación MAPFRE’s VOLUNTEERS Program. MAPFRE Group will, once again, continue to support this initiative in June 2019 for the upcoming World Blood Donor Day. For more information on how to donate, you may visit www.health.gov.mt.
