In conjunction with TAUZIA CSR Program and Harris Day 2015, Harris Riverview Kuta – Bali hosted a community blood drive in partnership with Bali Hotel Association and Bali
Red Cross on December 4th 2015 from 9 am to 12 pm. The drive was held at Harris Riverview Kuta – Bali, Jalan Raya Kuta No.62A Kuta – Bali 80361.
The need for blood locally remains constant and donations are needed to offset the blood shortages. People can donate a pint of blood every 56 days. Patients with cancer, victims of accidents, and those undergoing surgery are just some of the recipients who benefit from blood donations. By donating just one pint of blood, you have the potential to save up to three lives.
This event is open for public and the goal is to get as many donors as possible. Anyone who is in generally good health can donate blood. The entire process takes about three hour and all blood types are needed.
Laetitia Delvart, GM of Harris Hotel & Residences Riverview Kuta Bali and Sport and Culture Director at Bali Hotel Association was amazed by the number of donors from hotel partners, hotel community, sport club and other but also extended gratitude to sponsors such as PMI and Bali Hotel Association.
“We are happy to know that we can help people by donating our bloods, and this is also one of our CSR activities. The number may seem insignificant in helping PMI to meet the local’s blood stock. However, this action shows a real contribution made by the employees, customers and the community surrounding Harris Riverview to other people in Indonesia. I hope that this blood donation can help to motivate and to raise our spirit and awareness within on the importance of unity and helping one another,” she continued.
TAUZIA and BHA encourage all people especially hospitality industry players to give something valued. This potential life saving act can give patients in need, another holiday season with loved ones.
