10th Seremban Combined Division 3rd Annual Blood Donation Campaign 2010

Prepared by Choon Min Hong

The 10th Seremban Combined Division held its third blood donation campaign “From me to you - A gift of Life” on the 13th and 14th of March 2010 at Seremban Parade. The campaign is part of the Division’s continuous efforts to highlight the importance and the need for blood donation. In addition, the Blood Donation Campaign supported by Port Dickson Hospital and Seremban Parade aims to foster lifelong blood donors.

 

Deputy State Commander SJAM NS Dato Loh Kim Heong officiated the event at 11am, also present were Area Superintendent (Operations) Mr. Yap Kar Hoong, Area Superintendent (Nursing) Mdm. Wong Lai Hwa, Area officers and members from school divisions.

The campaign, which was supervised by a team of specialised doctors and nurses from Port Dickson Hospital, generated a tremendous response. Some 229 volunteers donated blood during the two-day event. However, 56 registered donors were rejected due to health conditions such as low haemoglobin count, high blood pressure and other medical problems. A total of 22 volunteers pledged to donate their organs.

The campaign was held with the help of sponsors, including Pusat Buku Sinaran Sdn. Bhd., Lucky Bread Company and Seremban Parade. All donors, sponsors and volunteers were recognised with certificates of appreciation and gifts.

We wish that this Annual Blood Donation campaign will create a positive change in people’s attitude and that each of us can save a life with such an easy gesture of solidarity like blood donation. We thank all our SJAM members, sponsors and members of the public who came forward to assist and donate blood.

For the Service of Mankind.
