Digicel Fiji celebrated its sixth anniversary by organising a blood drive at its head office in Suva yesterday.

This is the third year for the telecommunication company to hold a blood drive for its staff in celebrating its birthday.

The drive helps the national blood bank which needs up to 50 pints of blood per day to meet the demand. This blood drive will help as the Colonial War Memorial Hospital needs to stock enough blood as a team of doctors from India will start cardiac surgeries in Suva next week.

The national manager of the Ministry of Health’s  blood bank, Josefa Bolaqace, said it was a great initiative from the company

“We want to thank Digicel Fiji for this initiative while celebrating their birthday and organising this blood drive because this will benefit all Fijians,” said Mr Bolaqace.

The company’s head of marketing, Sheryl Singh was happy to see this initiative through in its third year and applauded the response from the staff during the drive.

“This is a worthy cause and we believe in giving back to the community hoping this will help save some lives or help treat patients needing blood transfusions,” Ms Singh said.

“On our sixth anniversary, just like we have done for the past two years, we give a ‘gift of life’ as one donation will save three lives.”

The company’s staff gathered for a morning tea celebration at Kadavu House.

There its brand ambassador and now Assistant Minister of Youth and Sport, Iliesa Delana, was officially thanked and recognised for his career in politics.
