BANK Windhoek last week exceeded all expectations with 116 staff members and customers who donated blood during the bank’s final blood donation drive for 2017. In total, 378 donations were made this year which could potentially save 1 134 lives.
“It’s been an honour to save a life. It’s the least I can do for my fellow men,” said Sharon Jenneker from Bank Windhoek’s main branch.
“To do something for another person means a lot to me. I have been donating for the past five years and encourage my colleagues to do the same,” Jenneker said.
“I feel great knowing my donation can potentially save three lives. Donating blood is my way of giving back to the community,’” said Geraldo du Plessis also from the main branch.
“My reasons for donating blood are firstly to save a life. You never know the situation of a person in need, until you find yourself in those people’s shoes. Secondly I want to make a difference. As long as I am healthy, I can also contribute to the well-being of someone else. Donating blood is the most selfless gift you can give any person,” said Elzaan Kotze, relationship support officer: Personal Banking at Bank Windhoek.
“At Bank Windhoek we strive to encourage employees to see the lasting impact they have on their own lives and those around them. Our blood donation clinics are just one of many such examples. Here we encourage employees to give of themselves and donate blood,” said Marjolize Scholtz, wellness consultant at Bank Windhoek.
