A total of 74 pints of blood was collected during a blood donation organised by the Malaysian Association (PWM) at Traders Inn yesterday.

Haji Mohd Eddy Adzyn bin Haji Zaman, who actively donates blood, acknowledged the importance of donating blood to save lives.

“I urge people to donate blood because there are many in need of it. We also need to help increase reserves at the blood donation centre,” he said.

Low Tong Wah, who is one of the top five donors in the country with over 140 donations so far, also rolled his sleeves up for the good cause.

Sharing a similar sentiment, Low encourages all young people to donate blood because it makes them healthier, and at the same time help those in need of blood.

“I am 65 and I am happy that I can still donate blood. My first time was in Malaysia in 1986,” he said.

The donation drive is one of the many activities organised to foster good relations among Malaysians residing in Brunei Darussalam and locals in the country.

As the nation continues its efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19, all donors were required to book appointment to confirm their slots.
