Blood donation in aid of Thalassemia patients – Romax India
Romax India organised a blood donation camp in association with The Wishing Factory, an NGO dedicated to improving and enriching the lives of underprivileged Thalassemia patients in India.
The blood donation activity took place on 21st August and received more than 50 donations, not only from Romax employees but also from nearby companies such as Zymr Systems, Product Dossier, Timeless Learning, Nourvon, Lokmangal and Akzonobal. Local residents also came to contribute to this noble cause.
People with this condition produce either no or too little haemoglobin, which is used by red blood cells to carry oxygen around the body. This means that patients may require frequent blood/RBC transfusions: The Wishing Factory plays a key role in spreading awareness about the issues faced by Thalassemia patients and how a simple blood test can detect the condition.
The Ruby Hall Clinic’s Blood Donation Department team, which assists with free transfusions to Thalassemia patients, helped to set up and manage the camp in the Romax office with utmost care. Donors were gifted with a basil plant (Tulsi) and Romax was certified for its contribution by their Head of Department.
The Romax team greatly appreciate all donors and partner organisations, specially The Wishing Factory and The Ruby Hall Clinic’s Blood Donation Department teams. To learn more about the work undertaken by The Wishing Factory, or to find out how you can support them, please visit their website here.
Across the year, Romax puts in place a flexible but active CSR strategy for its employees, which covers everything from employees who are STEM ambassadors, major cycling and marathon events, from picking an annual chosen charity – this year’s charity is the Lincs and Nottingham Air Ambulance, where monthly fund-raising events will be promoted throughout the company. Our colleagues in global offices also have their own strategies which are centred around reactions to important issues to them:
