Blood Donation Campaign in Conjunction with the 35th Anniversary

Prepared by Choon Min Wai

 

The Blood Donation Campaign was held on 1st and 2nd March 2008 at the lobby of Jusco Seremban 2, from 10 a.m. to 4p.m. The programme was the first blood donation campaign of 2008 held by the 10th Combined Division of First NS Area. This campaign is developed to encourage members of the public as well as members of St. John Ambulance Malaysia to help the needy and at the same time to increase awareness about the importance of and need for blood donation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In addition, the Blood Donation Campaign supported by National Blood Center and Jusco Seremban 2 aims to foster lifelong blood donors.

Deputy State Commander, Mr. Loh Kim Heong officiated the event at 11.00am, also present were Mr. Raman A/L Krishnan, State Hon. Secretary, Mr. Philip Chew, First NS Area Commander, State officers and Area officers.

A team composed of a doctor and some nurses from the National Blood Bank was at hand to assist the donors. For the duration of the two days, 170 members of the public came to donate blood and organ donors reached a total of 31. It was a heartwarming sight to see donors from all walks of life selflessly donating their blood and organs.

As a token of appreciation, fruit baskets were presented to the VIPs, the National Blood Centre and Organ Donation Department for their help and kind support in making this campaign a success. As for the donors, small gifts were given. Refreshments including tea and cakes were also served to all donors.
The National Blood Centre hoped that programmes such as these could be held on a continual basis because the blood reserves available do not meet the existing requirements.


The organizers would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to our sponsors namely Dato’ Dr. Lim Lee Seng, Mr. Soon Boon Ta, Double A Copy Centre, C M Sin Enterprise, Wawasan Pintas Sdn. Bhd., Aik Yuen Foong Bakery, Lucky Bread Seremban and Pusat Buku Sinaran Sdn. Bhd.
