Fifteen pints of blood were collected during a donation drive, jointly organised by Youth Centre and the Blood Donation Centre, at the Bandar Seri Begawan (BSB) Youth Centre yesterday.
BSB Youth Centre Supervisor Haji Mohd Sofian bin Haji Amit said the event is a continuation of a series of campaigns held in Tutong, Belait and Temburong districts in conjunction with the National Youth Day celebration.
He shared that the campaign’s objectives are to raise awareness on the importance of donating blood and to ensure sufficient supply at the Blood Donation Centre of Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) Hospital.
Donor Nur Hazirah binti Haji Kula said that it was her second time donating blood and hoped her contribution will help those in need of blood transfusion.
Meanwhile, Mohd Izzuddin bin Saiful Bahri shared that it was his fifth time donating blood.
The campaign will continue tomorrow from 9am to noon.
