By November 2017, blood was donated by 270 workers, while individual actions continue in the need.

-The response of our workers was quite good also this year, so we can freely say that this human gesture of GIKIL's workers has become a tradition regularly supported by both, our Company and the wider social community. Among the donors, there are a large number of those who have responded to the action for several tens of times so far, and we are particularly pleased to see that young people are increasingly involved. It is a gesture worth praise - said Zijad Kasumović, leader of the project.

In addition to regular voluntary blood donation, GIKIL employees also respond to emergency calls from Tuzla's health centres and UCC Tuzla, whether to help treat a working colleague or another patient.  

Although participation in the campaign is voluntary, for all blood donors in GIKIL symbolic gift packages were provided as well as days off. Encouraging this gesture of humanity of every potential donor, which also proves the high awareness of the need and values ​​of voluntary blood donation, Global Ispat Koksna Industrija d.o.o. Lukavac carries the title of a leading company in Tuzla Canton.
