The Kampong Masin Mosque Committee members, in collaboration with Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) Hospital through the Blood Donation Centre, organised a blood donation campaign at the Kampong Masin Mosque yesterday.

Imam Haji Zainol said the blood donation campaign aimed to assist the public, especially mosque congregants, in donating blood to help those in need and to increase the blood supply at the Blood Donation Centre.

The event was one of the committee’s annual social responsibility initiatives on the calendar.

Donors had to undergo health screening, including blood pressure and haemoglobin level, before getting the green light to give back to the community.
