May 23, 2019
For the seventh time, the Fresenius Kabi China Blood Donation Activity took place in various hotspots around the country. This year, in 14 cities, including major metropolitan hotspots such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Nanchang and more, around 450 passionate volunteers made the event a great success.
Donating blood is a selfless act for the benefit of the public in line with our corporate philosophy of “caring for life”. Since 2013, the amount of donated blood and apheresis platelets – and participating volunteers – has constantly grown: The colleagues from Fresenius Kabi China collected 134 units of apheresis platelets and 44,400 units of whole blood during the social activity day.
The donations will be used to help care for critically and chronically ill patients throughout the country – and the employees from Fresenius Kabi China already look forward to next year’s donation activity: "I donated blood for the first time,” said Wei Zhang, part of Human Resources & Communications at Fresenius Kabi China. “I was nervous at first, but when I was told that I meet all necessary requirements, I was happy and excited. I look forward to participate again and hope that more and more colleagues join this meaningful event.”
