Thirty individuals roll up sleeves for a good cause
Atotal of 30 pints of blood was collected during a blood donation organised by GHK Motors in collaboration with the Blood Donation Centre, RIPAS Hospital at the GHK Motors Headquarter showroom in Beribi.
Marketing Executive of GHK Ahmad Faezul Imtiaz Adam said that blood donation is part of the company’s social responsibility which aims to provide support and importance to the community in need of blood.
According to Ahmad, it was not the first time for the company to conduct a blood donation drive. It has hosted several blood donations in the past few years.
He added that GHK also plans to conduct Blood donation drives at least twice a year as their Corporate social responsibility activity.
He further shared that the response to the event has been very encouraging, banding members of various communities together to roll their sleeves for a good cause including their own employees and staff members.
In addition to that, the event also saw a positive increase in people registering for the blood donation drive beforehand.
He further added that the initiative was held in response to reports of a low supply of blood at the Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) Hospital Blood Bank, which prompted authorities to issue calls for donors.
For Ahmad, being able to donate blood is a blessing as this is his first pint of blood just before the COVID-19 pandemic hit the country. He recommends that others should start donating blood.
“We believe that it’s a good cause to help people in need, especially for those who are in need of blood,” he said.
