A total of 38 pints of blood were collected during a blood donation drive hosted by the Foochow Association, Kuala Belait in collaboration with Suri Seri Begawan Hospital Blood Bank Unit on December 6.

The campaign was aimed at supporting the efforts of the nation’s hospitals in maintaining constant and adequate blood supply and raising awareness on the importance of regular blood donation. The campaign was held while adhering to guidelines set by the Ministry of Health including temperature checks, providing hand santisers to visitors and practising social distancing.

The association pledged to conduct similar campaigns and charitable activities to lend a helping hand for those in need.
