HONG KONG, March 23, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- City Telecom (H.K.) Limited (HKSE:1137) (Nasdaq:CTEL) takes an active role in engaging our local community. Since 2007, we have invited the Hong Kong Red Cross to our office for a blood drive every six months. So far, we have accumulated 725 donations totaling about 250 Liters of Blood (assuming 350 ml per donation), which equals to the total blood volume of some 50 adults (The blood volume of an adult is around 5 liters on average)!
Carrie Wong, Manager of Talent Management said, "Our Talents are not superhuman, so whilst we may not be able to help everyone and solve problems on global scale, we will not hesitate if we have a chance to help and to engage our local community. It is our role as a company to help facilitate and make it more efficient and fun for our Talents to get involved locally. By inviting the Red Cross to our office, we make it easy for Talents to donate blood, lowering their inconvenience factor."
