A total of 49 pints of blood were collected during a blood donation campaign organised by Setia Motors Sdn Bhd, in collaboration with Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) Hospital Blood Donation Centre at Setia Motors Beribi Showroom yesterday.

The campaign, held from 10am to 3pm, received more than 50 individuals.

One of the donors Dang Tuah binti Haji Gagak said that she started donating blood since 2010, and has been actively involved in any blood donation campaign.

“There was a time where I had to stop from donating blood due to my health problem, but this year, I am back to donate blood for those in need,” she said.

The campaign was part of Setia Motors’ corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative, which shares the motto ‘Save a Life, Give Blood’. It also helps the community and the National Blood Bank to restock blood supplies.
