Giving blood saves lives

Helsana has actively supported the SRC’s annual blood donation campaign for many years. Safe blood supply enables professionals to save lives following accidents, illnesses or childbirth complications. Swiss Transfusion SRC, together with 11 regional blood transfusion services, ensures that hospitals in Switzerland can rely on sufficient blood supplies at all times.

A successful partnership

Helsana has been supporting the Swiss Red Cross (SRC) since the start of 2020. Our combined efforts enable as many people as possible to perform first aid in an emergency. This includes when somebody needs first aid due to mental health problems.

In spring 2020, the rise of COVID-19 meant that overcoming the pandemic became the focus of the partnership. The partners took the decision to make a joint solidarity contribution to the Swiss population. Helsana donated CHF 1 million to the SRC for its support functions. Helsana also supported the SRC’s Corona Emergency Fund.
