One hundred and fifty-two pints of blood were collected in the two-day blood donation campaign organised by the Ministry of Defence (MinDef) and Royal Brunei Armed Forces (RBAF) at the Blood Donation Centre, Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) Hospital since last Monday.

The campaign aimed to support the efforts of the nation’s hospitals in maintaining adequate blood supply.

The donors including MinDef and RBAF personnel, adhered to social distancing measures as advised by the Ministry of Health to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The blood donation campaign is part of MinDef and RBAF’s social commitment and responsibility in assisting the government, particularly the MoH in addressing COVID-19.
