01 July 2024

Harita Nickel, a nickel mining and processing company on Obi Island, showed its care to the community by hosting a blood donation drive. Activities carried out in honor of World Blood Donor Day were held in two locations, namely the Obi Site on Saturday, June 29 and the Jakarta head office will be on Monday, July 29, 2024.

Employees from all Harita Nickel business units and contractors actively participated in the blood donation. From the Obi Site,  around 150 employees and contractors took part in the humanitarian action carried out at the PT Halmahera Persada Lygend (HPL) clinic.

Roykedona Lisa Trixie, Head of the Blood Donation Committee and Site Doctor at Harita Nickel expressed her appreciation for the employees' enthusiastic participation. "We are very pleased with the high level of enthusiasm and participation from our employees in this blood donation event. This not only reflects the company's contribution to the surrounding community but also demonstrates the humanitarian values we uphold at Harita Nickel," she said.

This blood donation drive supports Harita Nickel’s commitment to public health. The blood collected from this drive in the Obi Site will be given to Labuha Regional General Hospital (Rumah Sakit Umum Daerah or RSUD) to help meet the hospital's blood supply needs.

“We hope to contribute to public health and help meet RSUD Labuha’s blood supply needs. Each donation today is a beacon of hope for those in need,” Roykedona added.

The organizing committee strictly followed health and safety procedures. Participants had health screenings to verify their eligibility, and the medical team ensured the blood collection was sterile and safe.

Nurul Afiah, Head of the Blood Transfusion Unit at RSUD Labuha, thanked the Harita Nickel employees who donated blood. "The employees' participation shows their strong awareness and social concern. We hope events like this can be held regularly," she said.

Furthermore, Nurul explained several benefits of blood donation for donors. “For donors, regular blood donation can help maintain heart health and renew blood cells in the body. It also provides emotional satisfaction by helping and benefiting others,” she explained.

Fajar Aprianto from the HSE department of PT Megah Surya Pertiwi (MSP) expressed satisfaction with the event. "As a Harita Nickel employee, I'm glad to join this blood donation drive. It helps others and promotes personal well-being," he said. Fajar, who has donated blood four times while working at Harita Nickel, expressed his willingness to join similar activities if the company holds them again in the future.

Harita Nickel regularly hosts social and humanitarian activities as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Besides blood drives, the company engages in community empowerment programs in education, health, economy, infrastructure, and socio-cultural sectors. Harita Nickel is dedicated to making a positive impact on the local communities and environment where it operates.
