The Event of Blood Donation – 2016.10.13
On 8th October 2016, JustMarkets in collaboration with Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahimah (HTAR) has successfully organized the first Blood Donation Campaign held in Aeon Mall,
Bukit Tinggi Klang. The aim of this campaign was to create awareness to the public about the advantages of donating blood.
Daniel Rahim: "I haven’t heard about this campaign before. But I think it’s a great idea. JustMarkets team made a good
And I hope that they will repeat such an experience in future."
The campaign received overwhelming support from the public visiting the shopping center as early at 10.00 a.m.
Staff from nearby shops also took the opportunity to participate.
People had to fill up the form and go through a screening test to determine the level of hemoglobin and blood pressure that allows a person to be a donor.
12 staff from hospitals were on duty on that day to make the campaign successful.
Aquil Abdullah: "I read about this donation campaign in Facebook and decided to take part in it. To my regret, I have
never donated blood before.
But now I’m happy that I can help people who need help."
The campaign ended at 5.00 p.m. As a result, total turn up on that day was 81 people, 38 people donated blood successfully,
43 people were rejected as unqualified donors. All blood collected through this campaign was sent to National Blood Center.
Nurul Harun: "Such a great deal! I try to help everyone who needs it. I found myself here by accident.
And when I saw what was going on, I decided to take part in blood donation without any doubts.
I will take part in such campaigns in future, if JustMarkets provides them further as well."
JustMarkets is going to held blood donation on a regular basis. Hope, the next years more and more people will take part in the campaign.
Donate blood – save one’s life!
