SOPB helps register 56 blood donors for Miri Blood Bank
MIRI: Fifty- six out of 76 people who came to the donation drive run by Sarawak Oil Palms Bhd ( SOPB) at Boulevard Shopping Mall here recently, are eligible to donate their blood.
According to SOPB public relations officer Enki Pati, the programme was mainly to help the blood bank of Miri Hospital to overcome the shortage of supply during critical periods.
“Especially with the yearend approaching, it is crucial to maintain the blood stock. Our event (at Boulevard mall) was a small effort to help the Miri blood bank to replenish its stock – our way of contributing back to the community,” he said in a press statement yesterday.
The blood donation drive was run in collaboration with Miri Hospital’s Blood Transfusion Unit and Malaysian Red Crescent ( MRC) Miri Chapter.
