MIRI: Sarawak Oil Palms Bhd ( SOPB) held a blood do­na­tion drive at Boule­vard Shopping Mall in Pu­jut last week­end and col­lected 69 pints from 93 reg­is­tered donors.

The ac­tiv­ity was part of the group’s ini­tia­tives to give back to the com­mu­nity un­der its cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity tagline, ‘We Grow To­gether with Lo­cal Com­mu­ni­ties’.

Ac­cord­ing to SOPB as­sis­tant head of sup­port and ser­vices Joseph Ling, the blood do­na­tion cam­paign helped in­crease aware­ness of sup­ply short­age at blood banks across Sarawak.

“The drive was part of SOPB’s con­stant com­mit­ment to give back to so­ci­ety, while help­ing blood banks main­tain suf­fi­cient stock es­pe­cially dur­ing fes­tive sea­sons and school hol­i­days, when the de­mand is of­ten higher.

“We also hope this cam­paign would en­cour­age young Miri­ans to help those in need by do­nat­ing blood and adopt a healthy lifestyle,” he said.

The drive was run in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Mer­ris, sup­ported by Miri Hospi­tal Blood Bank and Malaysian Red Cres­cent Miri District.

Suc­cess­ful donors re­ceived with good­ies bag, which had Mer­ris pure veg­etable cook­ing oil pro­duced lo­cally by SOPB us­ing 100 per cent Sarawak- grown oil palms.
