Blood donation camps provide an ideal platform for ICICI Group’s employees for volunteering. Blood donations takes only 15 minutes per donor and provides an opportunity to the employees to participate in a noble cause. ICICI Foundation conducts blood donation camps across all the offices of ICICI Group through the year.Awareness drives are undertaken to dispel common myths and spread the message that blood donation is a safe and worthwhile practice.
ICICI Foundation’s partnership with the State Blood Transfusion Council (SBTC) ensures that every blood donation event meets the highest hygiene and comfort standards.
The blood donated by ICICI Bank’s employees goes to the SBTC’s premier blood banks, which provides safe blood at the lowest price to people from all low socio-economic backgrounds and regularly provides blood for free to children with thalassemia and sickle cell anemia.
