Jeena celebrates World Blood Donor Week with the sole purpose of saving a life |

Mumbai, June 16, 2022….Jeena & Company, a young 122-year-old freight forwarding and logistics organization, organizes blood drives every year, except for 2 years during the pandemic, i.e. in 2020 and 2021. This week , as part of World Blood Donor Day, Jeena once again held a blood donation camp in Mumbai. More than 65% of employees participated, except those unable to donate due to medical conditions or low hemoglobin. This is an entirely voluntary exercise and the employees are very proud to be part of this social dynamic for the benefit of others. And this is only due to the conscious conviction to do something for society. Blood donation camps in Jeena are carried out in collaboration with Masina Hospital Trust, Byculla.

Jeena believes in supporting the community in the best possible way and since blood is the most precious gift one can give to another person – the gift of life, apart from other social activities , Jeena organizes the annual blood donation drive, which brings the organization together and promotes a cause that saves lives.

This kind of initiative allows employees to do charitable acts, to help the community. However, since they are in the middle of work and taking on personal day-to-day responsibilities, they don’t have enough time. This is where Jeena creates an opportunity where employees can participate in social activities during working hours and make a difference to society.

As Mrs. Lucky Kulkarni, Group HR Manager, Jeena & Company, says: “When employees come to donate blood, they are happy because they know that this blood is going to help someone somewhere and save lives. Generosity for itself creates a more compassionate workforce. When employees come together for a social cause, they can have a bigger impact. By helping others, employees gain intangible benefits, i.e. feelings of peace, pride and purpose. These feelings translate into a more fulfilled life and a better performance in life, whether at work or at home. When people experience this positivity, they are more likely to continue giving and participating in other ways as well, and this happiness, satisfaction and fulfillment is reflected in their office work as well. The world is better when people have a purpose and more so a purpose of social responsibility.

Jeena’s contribution to healthcare using logistics support during Covid

During the pandemic, from early March 2020 until the recent past, when many parts of the world were in lockdown and the roads were empty, people were locked in their homes for fear of contracting Covid and losing their lives. However, Jeena employees, being part of one of India’s largest logistics organizations, were all at airports/seaports working overtime, handling multiple shipments and clearing essential commodities. i.e. medicines, vaccines, blood samples, PPE kit, etc. without even thinking once that they can get infected too, mainly because they thought these products would help patients and doctors somewhere in the world and save lives. Jeena employees were united and fearless because they had one purpose, one mission to save lives like a true Corona Warrior. This can only happen to an employee when they are involved in the act of giving regularly, which resonates with how we organize blood drives each year. The act of giving comes naturally to all of our employees. The culture of the organization for the past 122 years fosters a sense of selfless contribution from owners who silently contribute to society in their own way. And this is reflected at all levels of the organization. Being in logistics with almost 2000 employees across the country and a lot of support staff, we are very proud to share this responsibility with all the companies in our group to have an impact on the society in which we live.
