The blood donation drive, held in collaboration with Panaga Club and Panaga Health Centre, attracted over 100 participants.

The drive was supported by the Blood Donation Centre from the Department of Laboratory Services, Ministry of Health (MoH). In line with the MoH guidelines, donors were assigned time slots to ensure social distancing, received protective masks, had their body temperatures checked and BruHealth QR Codes scanned.
