ETABLISSEMENT FRANCAIS DU SANG (E.F.S.)

  • By Floriane Maffei · Luxembourg, Europe

 

ETABLISSEMENT FRANCAIS DU SANG (E.F.S.)

Main aim of the charity

Blood collection and redistribution in case of emergency (need for transfusion) for critically injured or sick people. Together with the Red Cross, it saves lives all over the world...

How the employee got involved and why

Blood is Life! It is so precious...When I was a child, my father used to donate his blood...Then, with DHL, I started organizing on site blood collection with the Red Cross Lux but they decided to stop after some trials for practical reasons. Since I felt very concerned by this cause, I contacted the blood collection organization where I live in France (Thionville), 2 years ago, i.e. E.F.S. and F.F.D.S.B.

What work does the employee do for charity?

Either giving blood myself or helping the organization in welcoming the donators...all this by dedicating some private time.

What impact would winning have on the charity?

Supporting the organization would enable to collect more blood and sensitize more people to donate blood.

What impact would winning have on the employee?

My mother suffered from a brain cancer for more than 2 years and unfortunately died this year. She was transfused several times last year due to her treatment. I would be proud to have been able to collect more blood, saving more lives and /or at least helping cure sick people !!!
