Mashhor General Contractor Sdn Bhd held its yearly blood donation campaign yesterday at the company’s main office in Jalan Pangsa, Seria, under the theme ‘Bleed for a Cause’.

Forty-two Mashhor staff members each donated a pint of blood for the campaign, which was held in collaboration with the Suri Seri Begawan Hospital’s Blood Bank Unit, Department of Laboratory Services.

Among those rolling up their sleeves for a good cause were Deputy Operation Director Malai Shamil Faris bin Dr Malai Haji Abdul Hamid, Corporate HSSE Manager Mohd Rizal bin Dr Haji Abdul Latif, Business Development Manager Ferdinand De Chavez and Mashhor Catering Services Manager Mohd Ismail bin Mohd Ibrahim.

This is Mashhor’s 12th consecutive campaign, with the aim of collecting at least 30-50 pints from each blood donation. The company plans to conduct similar campaigns, along with its yearly activities, as a way of giving back to the community and to strengthen ties among staff members.
