With Multi-City blood donation drive, Mankind Pharma sparks #Rippleofchange

18 June 2024: Mankind Pharma has launched a major multi-city campaign titled #RippleOfChange on World Blood Donor Day. This initiative aims to address the critical shortage of blood donors in India and raise awareness about the importance of blood donation.

The campaign’s centerpiece is a powerful video that portrays the dire consequences of blood scarcity. The narrative follows a group of friends who experience the tragic loss of a loved one due to the unavailability of blood donors. The video aims to inspire more people to donate by highlighting how a simple act can save precious lives.

Here is the link to the video campaign: https://youtu.be/VXz4AoZTgHg

“With less than 1% of our population donating blood annually, India faces a severe and ongoing blood shortage crisis,” said Mr. Rajeev Juneja, Vice-Chairman and Managing Director, Mankind Pharma Ltd. “This critical shortfall in blood donations leads to the preventable loss of thousands of lives every day. Kindness resides in all of us, yet while many discuss this issue, few step forward to donate. Our #RippleOfChange movement aims to transform this notion by inspiring individuals to take action. By donating blood, each person can contribute to a ripple effect of positive change, saving lives, supporting medical emergencies, and fostering a culture of community care and responsibility.”

The integrated campaign spans digital, outdoor and on-ground activations across multiple cities. It features the release of the #RippleOfChange video on various digital platforms. Metro trains will feature innovative mirror installations to encourage commuters to reflect on becoming blood donors. Bus shelter ads in Delhi will further amplify the call to action. Additionally, Mankind Pharma is organizing free blood donation camps at its offices in Paonta Sahib, Manesar, and Delhi’s Okhla head office, with 600+ people enrolled to date for this cause.

Despite India’s large population, the country faces an annual blood shortage of a million units, according to industry reports. This lack of access to blood costs over 12,000 lives every day. At Mankind Pharma, we believe that saving someone’s life is one of the noblest acts one can perform, deserving active support rather than passive discussion. The company’s employees, known as Mankindians, regularly donate blood and advocate for this cause, demonstrating the potential for collective action to create a significant positive impact.
