The Management of Mabohai Shopping Complex said, “This is the third time we are conducting a Blood Drive at the Mabohai Shopping Complex and we would like to encourage the public to come and donate blood. It may be daunting for a first time donor but you will receive plenty of support and encouragement from the other donors and medical staff, and a health check from the doctor present. We would also like to reach out to veterans and regular blood donors to come and donate.
Donating blood not only benefits your health as cited in several newspaper articles but it also becomes a community service where the donor becomes a silent hero whose donation can help save a life.
