Canon Hongkong organized its Blood Donation Day for 15 years
2018-FEB-22

As the inventories for all blood types have been depleted to an alarming level for a long time, The Hong Kong Red Cross Blood Transfusion Service (BTS) urgently appealed to the public to donate blood so that the low blood inventories can be duly replenished for any sudden transfusion treatment of patients. In response to the appeal, Canon Hongkong (CHK) arranged regular “Blood Donation Day” for its staff in 15 years to promote the habit of regular blood donation in the company.

The 1st Blood Donation Day this year was held on 22 February. A total of 51 CHK staff volunteered to donate blood, 33 of them have successfully passed the health scanning and hemoglobin test. Mr. Philip Chan, Director & General Manager of CHK Business Imaging Solution & Production Printing Group, also visited the station and donated blood, he has set a good example for CHK staff and gave valuable support to the event.

The Hong Kong Red Cross BTS is the only public institution providing blood to all hospitals, public and private in Hong Kong. Over the years, BTS continues to educate the public the importance of blood donation, promote the habit of regular blood donation though different channels, as well as recruit more voluntary blood donors to ensure an adequate and stable blood inventory & supply in Hong Kong for saving more lives.

Mr. Philip Chan (3rd from left at back row), Director & General Manager of CHK Business Imaging Solution & Production Printing Group, together with CHK staff & Hong Kong Red Cross BTS team, encouraged more staff to have blood donation regularly.

33 CHK staff has successfully passed the health scanning and hemoglobin test to have blood donation.
