Blood Donation Drive
Over 120 foreign employees gathered at the Blood Bank at HSA for a worthy cause as part of the GATES Gives Life Blood Donation Drive.
The drive, involved foreign employees from countries such as India, Bangladesh, Thailand, Myanmar and The Philippines, who work on the building and maintenance of the local railway lines in Singapore.
The project, organized by their employer, GATES PCM Construction Ltd, as part of the company’s annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Initiative, marked the first time foreign employees had come together in such a scale at a blood bank to donate.
The project is yet another annual attempt, by the company, to give back to the community directly as part of their GATES Gives, CSR Initiative. Each year the company varies its giving to target a different sector of the community.
Chairman and CEO of GATES PCM Construction Ltd, Dato Sri Kitnasamy said: “In 2013, these same group of workers were involved in our unprecedented park preservation project, where they cleaned up over 7 kilometers of East Coast Park within 3 hours. They have since expressed passion for community work and in GATES PCM, we believe in providing every employee an opportunity for such endeavors.”
