RHB Bank Bhd, in collaboration with Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) Hospital Blood Donation Centre, organised its annual blood donation drive at its branch at the Yayasan Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Complex in the capital yesterday.

Held from 9.30am to 11.30am, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of RHB Bank Bhd (Brunei Operations) Haji Ishak bin Othman explained that the drive was a way for the bank to get closer to the people as well as to support the Blood Donation Centre. According to the CEO, the programme has been held regularly since 2014.

“We’ve received positive response especially from the RIPAS Hospital. That’s why we will continue with this programme. We believe banks need to get closer to the society and open their doors wider so the people in the country can find out the advantages and services offered”, he said.
