THE BLOOD DRIVE
DSC, Bank Audi Saves Lives Hand in Hand!
For the second year in a row, and in collaboration with Donner Sans Compter (DSC), Bank Audi
organised two blood drives, the first of which was held in May 2016 and involved 129 generous
employees who voluntarily took part in this initiative. 93 units of blood were donated, equivalent to
276 lives potentially saved.
“First, it was a pleasure having the two successful blood drives at Bank Audi;
I am more than glad to tell you that you broke the record for the highest number
of blood donors in a company: 57 (headquarters) and 36 (Sofil), which makes it a
total of 93 blood donors ! ”
a DSC representative enthusiastically
commented. Surrounding businesses in Sofil were also informed of
the event, and some clients and passers-by gladly donated blood. Last
year’s blood donation drive also played an important role in motivating
peers to follow suit this year. This event served to raise awareness and
motivate potential blood donors to support this cause and sustain the
Bank’s commitment to the community.
The second drive, which was held in November 2016 in partnership
with the Lebanese Red Cross, gathered 47 generous employees and
resulted in 38 units of blood donated, which is equivalent to 114
potential lives saved. A week after the initiative, successful donors
received a card allowing them to receive 1 unit of blood should they
need it for themselves, a friend, or a relative.
