The Autoriti Monetari Brunei Darussalam (AMBD), in collaboration with the Ministry of Finance and Economy (MoFE) and the Blood Donation Centre (BDC) of the Ministry of Health (MoH), organised the AMBD Blood Donation Drive at the MoFE Building yesterday.
Officers and staff of the organisations and departments residing at the MoFE Building participated.
The drive saw more than 100 registrations, and 73 pints of blood collected.
The campaign was held as part of AMBD’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative with the objective of increasing the supply of blood at the country’s blood bank.
This initiative also aimed to encourage the act of donating blood through enhancing awareness on its social impact. It is hoped that, through this initiative, the blood donated would enable those requiring blood transfusions to continue receiving their medical treatment.
