    The Maritime and Port Authority of Brunei Darussalam (MPABD) in collaboration with the Blood Donation Centre, Laboratory Services Department of the Ministry of Health (MoH) held a blood drive at the MPABD Headquarters in Muara yesterday.

    Of the 94 MPABD employees as well as personnel from the public and private sectors who had registered, only 53 were able to donate blood.

    The blood drive was held in conjunction with the Day of the Seafarer 2021, marked every June 25, and as part of MPABD’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives.

    The United Nations (UN), through the International Maritime Organization (IMO), recognises the Day of the Seafarer as an occasion to appreciate seafarers’ contribution to the development and continuity of international trade.
