MABOHAI Shopping Complex, in collaboration with the Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) Hospital Blood Donation Centre, yesterday joined efforts in meeting the increasing demand for blood supplies by hosting a blood donation drive at the shopping complex, successfully collecting 62 pints of blood.

According to a representative from the Mabohai Shopping Complex, the main objectives of the blood drive were to support the government programme in helping the RIPAS Blood Bank Unit get more blood donations as they are in need of a healthy and constant supply of blood, and to create awareness on the health benefits of donating blood.

The 62 pints collected is a new record for Mabohai Shopping Complex, with previous blood drives collecting an averaging of 40 and 50 pints of blood.

The event was also supported by Cuckoo Brunei, Supa Save and Ayam Brand.
