Mason’s Travel staff step up for blood drive

Volunteers from Mason’s Travel formed the largest group of donors among participating companies in a blood drive last week initiated by a youth community group.

"The 15 Mason’s Travel employees who gave blood for the exercise made it possible to collect about 10 litres for the Blood Bank," Karine Rassool from the Victoria hub of the Global Shapers Community said.

“I cannot stress enough the significance of this particularly as we enter the festive season when accidents are more prone to happen.” Ms Rassool said. “We are especially grateful to the participants and hope that they will consider becoming regular donors in the future.”

The blood drive made national television news, with Mason’s Travel highlighted by the Seychelles Broadcasting Corporation as having the largest corporate turnout.

PR, Branding & Communications Manager for Mason’s Travel, Nicole St. Ange, said the company was proud to be associated with such an important event, and further still of all of its staff who showed a willingness to give blood.

“In addition to those who donated, there were also many of our employees who were keen but did not meet the eligibility requirements due to their travel schedules,” she said. “We know that our hospitals are always in need of blood, so for our staff to display such awareness and compassion shows a lot about their character.”


According to Ms Rassool, given the positive response to the blood drive, Global Shapers is planning to launch an awareness campaign in 2016 about donating blood to encourage more volunteers.

An initiative of the World Economic Forum, the Global Shapers Community is a network of Hubs developed and led by young people who play leading roles in society and are actively contributing to their communities.
