The Institute of Company Secretaries of India has launched the ICSI Plasma Bank initiative keeping in mind the importance of plasma donors that are needed during the rising cases of COVID-19. Read the official announcement below:
Dear Professional Colleague,
As we are all aware of the trying times facing the nation, fighting the COVID battle is a task demanding and soliciting efforts not only on the part of the Government but each one of us to our best possible abilities and capabilities. The need of the hour is to contribute to the cause of nation building and catering to the needs of the society in any meaningful way possible.
In view of the challenges posed by the pandemic and given the rising numbers, Plasma donation and blood donation are critically important activities that contribute to saving lives in such a scenario. Given the few unique solutions and cures available, Plasma donated will be used to create therapies that would provide apt treatment in these times of crisis.
In view of the fact that Plasma donors are needed because lives depend on plasma protein therapies and understanding the magnanimity of the same from the thought that donating plasma is often called, 'the gift of life', the Institute of Company Secretaries of India has launched the ICSI Plasma Bank.
In furthering this endeavour, the Institute calls upon all its stakeholders to volunteer for donating plasma by registering at https://www.icsi.in/plasmabank/blood.aspx by furnishing your personal details and location. You may go through the FAQs to acquaint yourselves with the process. The needy can get in touch with you when required.
We look forward to your valuable contribution to this noble humanitarian initiative for as we have always said and believed
"Together we can. Together we will."
With warm regards,
CS Nagendra D. Rao
