Nineteen pints of blood from 26 donors were collected during a blood donation drive organised by Yayasan Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah (YSHHB) Primary School in collaboration with the Jerudong Park Medical Centre (JPMC) yesterday.

The two-hour cause was held in conjunction with the Science, Mathematics and ICT subject month which saw support from donors consisting of YSHHB teachers, staff and parents.

Campaign organiser Head of Science Department Shanju Najumunniza Ammal believes that donating blood “is a win-win for everyone involved”.

“Receivers get a vital substance and donors get to burn calories and keep their heart healthy. We believe that campaign will benefit the donors and those in need,” she said.

Meanwhile, 38 pints of blood were collected at GHK Motors Sdn Bhd headquarters in Beribi Industries yesterday as employees and management donated towards the good cause.

The blood donation drive was organised by GHK Motors as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities in reaching out to the community in collaboration with the Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha Hospital Blood Donation Centre.

Members of the public at the showroom also donated.

With the slogan of ‘Give Life for Others’, GHK Motors firmly believes that a simple contribution of donating blood is crucial in saving lives.
