The Mabohai Shopping Complex expressed gratitude following the overwhelming response from donors at the Mabohai Shopping Complex Blood Donation Drive, held on Thursday and yesterday at the complex’s event stage.

The drive was held in collaboration with the Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) Blood Donation Centre. Donations began at 10am and ended beyond the complex’s closing time of 3pm to accommodate the steady stream of donors, resulting in 111 successful donors over two days.

Manager of Mabohai Shopping Complex Yee-Man Cheng noted that with the critical shortage of blood of all types in the national blood bank, the complex was delighted to host a blood drive to answer the call of the RIPAS Hospital Blood Donation Centre for a venue at short notice. “We are delighted with the response from the public and we wish to thank all donors.

“We thank you for the generous spirit and know that the recipients and their loved ones will always remember people like you who donated to save lives.

“Look out for news of future blood donations at Mabohai Shopping Complex by following our social media platforms,“ she added.
