BLOOD DONATION CAMPAIGN POLITEKNIK BRUNEI
Wednesday, 16 March 2016
The School of Science and Engineering, Politeknik Brunei today held a blood donation campaign at its Lumut Campus in the Belait District. The event took place from 9 am to 1 pm in the Multi-Purpose Hall of the campus.
The main aim of the campaign is to encourage social responsibility towards the community amongst all staff and students of Politeknik Brunei through the simple act of life-saving blood donations.
Prior to the event, officials from the Blood Donation Centre of the Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) Hospital gave a briefing to disseminate information about blood donation to all staff and students at the campus. This is to increase awareness of the great impact that donors can make as well as the additional benefits of blood donation.
It is hoped that through this event, the school population will adopt blood donation as a life-long habit.
This campaign is an on-going event as part of Politeknik Brunei’s initiative to help the hospital to add more stock of blood for use by the needy.
