Amway Organizes Blood Donation Camp

Amway Opportunity Foundation (AOF) organized a blood donation camp along with All India Institute of Medical Sciences at their Jasola office. Amway distributors & employees actively participated in this Noble cause. This camp is one among a series of camps held by AOF along with Amway distributors.

"Donating blood is one of the most noble and significant contribution that a person can make to the society. Every year many people die during surgery only because of not getting enough supply of blood in time. By donating blood we indirectly save many lives" said Mr. William S Pinckney, Chairman - AOF. Speaking on the camp he said, "Delhi is in a troublesome situation because of Dengue pandemic. All the hospitals are facing shortage of blood. This shortage has made us come forward & organize this camp. Amway organized its first Blood donation camp at Amway India's Head Office in Delhi in association with the Red Cross Society of India on 6th September 2002 where 70 Amway employees donated blood. From then on, till date, AOF has made possible more than 400 blood donation camps across the country with 40,000+ donors, totally."

In the past, AOF has been recognized for conducting the largest blood donation camp by a corporate house in Madurai. AOF also received an award from JIPMER, Pondicherry, in recognition of conducting the largest Blood Donation Camp by a corporate house in Pondicherry.

Speaking on the occasion Dr.Poonam Coshich, Chief Transfusion Officer, AIIMS said, "It is good to see the active participation of Corporate like Amway in such activities. In India people have started realizing the importance of Blood Donation. Out of all the states West Bengal & Maharashtra have been great contributors. With the entry of Proactive MNCs Delhi's contribution has also increased."

AOF has been actively associated with several projects in the country. Under the National Project for the Blind, AOF with its partners AICB and NAB has successfully completed Braille Textbook project in Rajasthan, Delhi, Haryana, Punjab, Maharashtra Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Tamil Nadu and Braille Kit project in Kerala. In addition to this, AOF has also made possible Musical Evenings by Visually Challenged troupes. What is unique about AOF activities is the involvement of its volunteer base - drawn from the employees of Amway India as well as from the Amway distributors.
