Wayback Burgers Brunei co-organised a blood donation drive with Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) Hospital Blood Donation Centre recently.

The campaign was part of the company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR). The event was held from 10am-2pm and the donors received free milkshake for their contributions.

RIPAS Hospital Blood Bank Unit needs an average of 50 pints of blood a day to meet the demand of blood transfusion for patients.

Donors undergo a basic health screening by medical officers prior to donation. One pint of blood collected from each donor can help up to three people.
