One World Hotel Petaling Jaya recently held a blood donation drive in collaboration with the National Blood Centre.
The campaign was held in a function room from 11am until 4pm.
A total of 70 donors signed up to give blood including the hotel’s Human Resources manager Wan Rohaida Wan Mohammad.
Blood samples were taken from each potential donor to determine their health condition and eligibility.
“I wish to thank everyone who volunteered to donate blood.
“There is a blood shortage nationwide especially because of the dengue fever outbreak.
“We plan to make this a biannual event,” said Wan Rohaida.
First-timer Susan Cheong said she was glad to have finally found the courage to donate blood this year.
All donors were given snacks and drinks as well as a certificate of participation.
“The campaign gives us the opportunity to educate the public as well as raise awareness about the importance of blood donation.”
