Around thirty JGL’s and Adrialab’s employees participated in the second edition of the internal action of voluntary blood donation, “JGL Drop”, marking this year’s World Blood Donor Day.
This year, besides in Rijeka, “JGL Drop” was also organized in Zagreb, Split and Osijek from 13 to 15 June, with the support of Red Cross ans Department of Transfusion Medicine, collecting 940 doses of blood donated by citizens. Today’s blood donation in JGL’s facilities, during which 24 doses were collected, successfully concluded this year’s action.
JGL has incorporated socially responsible practices in the core of the business and continuously supports and encourages activities that provide greater value to society. The internal action was organized at the headquarters in Rijeka, at the newly opened Pharma Valley complex.
“I am extremely glad that this JGL’s action was successful for the second consecutive year, especially as we were joined by 11 new donors! JGL is an example of a company that is involved in social events and activities in a responsible manner, leading towards sustainable development. During the past year, other companies also involved their employees in the corporative actions of voluntary blood donation, and I think that JGL certainly served as a good example that others followed. Blood donors are the foundation of the health care system and I am pleased that we are able to expand the actions and allow people to also donate blood at the workplace. I hope “JGL Drop” becomes a tradition and that our domestic pharmaceutical company will continue to serve as an example to others,” said Ivo Vidotto, the president of the Council of Blood Donors of the Rijeka Red Cross branch office.
