Marking its 18th anniversary, Ncell Axiata in Kathmandu organizes the Blood Donation Programme
Commemorating its 18th anniversary, Ncell Axiata Limited organized a blood donation program on Tuesday at its corporate office, Ncell ICON in Lainchaur, Kathmandu.
Over 100 individuals participated in this program and donated blood. The general public, customers visiting Ncell ICON, and Ncell employees donated blood during the program, which was organized in collaboration with Hamro Life Bank.
Blood donors will receive an SMS notification when their donated blood is used in a hospital to save or improve patients’ lives. Living to its brand promise, ‘Today. Tomorrow. Together.’, Ncell organized the blood donation program under the anniversary theme ‘Here for You’. Blood donation is a vital part of healthcare throughout the world and contributions will save many lives, especially during emergency situations.

Jabbor Kayumov, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Ncell, expressed gratitude to everyone who donated blood to help save precious lives. He said, “Together with the community, our customers, and employees, it is rewarding to see that we have contributed to a noble cause. Moreover, blood donation is a selfless act that will give a deep satisfaction knowing that we have positively impacted lives. We firmly believe that Ncell is Here for Nepal and the Nepali people.”
