Veritas Kapital Assurance Urges Staff To Donate Blood

The staff of Veritas Kapital Assurance Plc, an insurance company, has been encouraged to donate blood regularly.

The Managing Director, Kenneth Egbaran,  made the call on Wednesday in Lagos at a news conference to mark the World Blood Donor Day.

Egbaran lauded the World Health Organisation (WHO) for setting aside a day on the need for people to donate blood regularly.

“The day is set aside to show solidarity and appreciation to blood donors around the world while creating wider public awareness of the need for regular and unpaid blood donation.

He recalled that recently Veritas Kapital Assurance partnered with the National Blood Service Commission (NBSC) to celebrate the day.

 According to him, the aim of the partnership was to improve the availability of safe blood in the country.

“The drive for the blood donation is part of its corporate social responsibility activities.

“I commend the high turnout of staff and as a responsible corporate citizen, the company is humbled for the opportunity given to us to save lives by contributing to the efforts of the NBSC,” he said.

Egbaran said that the company was motivated to partake in this noble gesture due to its “deep resolve to play a pivotal role in socially responsible programmes that will positively impact the lives and wellbeing of everyday Nigerians.”

The Head, Corporate Services of Veritas Kapital Assurance Plc, Aisha Garba attributed the high turnout of staff to the “employee volunteer programmes” instituted by the company at the beginning of the year.

“These programmes actively engage staff to effectively serve their communities and the environment of which blood donation in collaboration with the NBSC is a top priority,” Garba said

Earlier, the Head, Marketing and Corporate Communications of the company, Arinze Adigwe, commended the NBSC for its professionalism and support.

Adigwe said "the management and staff of Veritas Kapital Assurance Plc are deeply honoured and grateful for the opportunity to save lives".
