The HSBC Malta Foundation has reaffirmed its long-standing support for the National Blood Transfusion Service (NBTS) and its ongoing efforts to raise awareness about the importance of donating blood.

As in past years, HSBC’s support will help the NBTS reach more people who can learn about the lifesaving work of the service and how they can contribute personally.

“The NBTS sees approximately 20,500 individuals who donate blood every year. That has the potential to save the lives of more than 60,000 people annually,” HSBC Malta Executive Director and Head of Business Development Michel Cordina said.

“At HSBC, we will continue to support the NBTS which provides such an essential service and to encourage everyone who can to donate blood,” he continued.

HSBC Malta’s relationship with NBTS goes back to 2004 when the bank started organising regular blood donation sessions at its Qormi Head Offices. In subsequent years this support has increased to include the donation of marketing materials.

“The blood donation of one person, which takes a few minutes, can potentially save the life of three people,” Monique Debattista, Medical Lead of Blood Donation Service at NBTS said.

“As such, the altruism of blood donors is invaluable. So is the long-standing support of HSBC Malta and the HSBC Malta Foundation, which has helped the NBTS reach more people, attract new donors and retain existing ones,” she concluded.
