POLITEKNIK BRUNEI HOLDS BLOOD DONATION CAMPAIGN
Wednesday, 09 August 2017
Politeknik Brunei today held a blood donation campaign at its main campus in Ong Sum Ping, Bandar Seri Begawan. Students, lecturers and staff of the higher education institution donated blood.
The main aim of the campaign is to encourage social responsibility towards the community among all staff and students of Politeknik Brunei through the simple act of life-saving blood donations.
The campaign is an on-going event as part of Politeknik Brunei’s initiative to help hospitals in Brunei Darussalam to increase more stock of blood for use by the needy.
Prior to the campaign, officials from the Blood Donation Centre of the Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) Hospital gave a briefing to disseminate information about blood donations to the staff and students. 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 campaign, the institution’s population will adopt blood donation as a life-long habit.
