On February 26th in conjunction with our Healthy Spring activities, we donated blood in cooperation with Valsts asinsdonoru centrs! Our priority is not only to be healthy ourselves, but also help those in need and be socially responsible.
Here at Shared Service Center we are all about action and with the help of National Blood Service of Latvia some of our actions are also helping the society. It is not very unusual that National Blood Service of Latvia is coming to a company which has registered for blood donation at their premises.
February 26 th is the first time in, hopefully, many yet to come for SSC to invite employees to donate blood. The SSC Senate's idea instantly gained a large support – over 70 employees applied! Since there is a limited capacity for donations, only part of the volunteers were able to participate this time.Senate is looking forward to continuing with the cooperation so follow up on Senate news for the next Donor’s Day!
The procedure itself is not painful and takes about 40 minutes. You are examined and questioned by a physician to ensure there are no risks to your health. Every donor gains several other things besides the instant weight loss of about 500 grams – an extra day to use for vacation, monetary compensation and other benefits.
