    Seventy pints of blood were collected in a blood donation drive organised by Brunei Gas Carrier (BGC) in collaboration with Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) Hospital Blood Donation Centre and McDonald’s Brunei.

    BGC Managing Director Pengiran Shamhary bin Pengiran Dato Paduka Haji Mustapha took part in the event at McDonald’s Jerudong branch. It was held in support of World Blood Donor Day and the Ministry of Health’s (MoH) call to replenish the country’s blood reserve.

    It was the first of a series of two blood donation drives. The next will be at McDonald’s Lambak branch on June 26.

    Meanwhile, the Maritime and Port Authority of Brunei Darussalam (MPABD) will organise a blood donation campaign to mark Day of Seafarer commemorated annually on June 25.

    MPABD’s blood donation drive will be at its headquarters on June 30 from 8.15am to noon.

    Those interested in joining should register with the secretariat on WhatsApp at 8312809. Registration closes on June 24.
