One such ESL Steel Limited’s employee volunteering initiative ‘V for Society’ has been organising an annual voluntary Blood Donation Camp for some years.

The Voluntary Blood Donation saw participation from complete cross-section of employees of the ESL Steel Limited’s Siyaljori plant – whether they were Workers, Contractual Labourers, Staff, Technicians, Officers, Business Partners, and even Management level employees. Some who came to the venue also could not donate since they were screened first and if it was not deemed right health-wise for them to part with their blood.
By the end of today’s Blood Donation Camp at ESL Steel Limited’s Siyaljori Plant premises, ESL Steel Limited has become the highest blood donating organisation in Bokaro District. This has been certified by Indian Red Cross Society, Bokaro and the delegation which was here from Indian Red Cross Society felicitated those who were at the forefront of organising this camp.
Dr Dinesh Kumar, Civil Surgeon, Bokaro took time out of his busy schedule to be present at the occasion as the Chief Guest, who also made the point of “How Important is Blood in our lives”. Dr U C Mohanty, Head of Indian Red Cross Society, Bokaro was the Guest of Honour and he graciously helped those present at the Venue understand the reasons why blood donation is so important and how a body gets stronger after blood donation; and Ms. Kanchan, District Data Manager, National Health Mission, Bokaro was so gracious that she travelled to the Plant premises to further motivate volunteers to make the donation and pointed out how it was more healthy to donate blood than to not donate.
Shri Ashish Ranjan, Head, CSR, ER & PR of ESL Steel Limited said on the occasion, “We extend our heartfelt gratitude to every employee and business partner who participated in our recent blood donation camp organised as a part of our employee volunteering initiative. They joined hands with our unwavering commitment to giving back to the society and their generosity will help save lives and embody the spirit of compassion. Together we are making a meaningful impact on our community.”
All those who participated during the Blood Donation Camp, whether as a volunteer to organise the Event, or to donate their blood, or even those were requested to come to motivate those around or to spread the right type of information and knowledge – all had positive feedback which underscores the impact of ESL Steel Limited’s ‘V for Society’ initiatives on community’s health.
