“Not everyone is a paramedic or a doctor, but everyone can help save lives by simply donating blood,” explained a very passionate PP Ricky Ng, Rotary Club of BSB’s Blood Donation Campaign Coordinator.

"This is why the Rotary Club of Bandar Seri Begawan and the Mobile Blood Bank, RIPAS Hospital, will once again be jointly holding a blood donation campaign on Saturday, 14th March 2014, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM, at the Lexus Showroom, Gadong, to make it easy, comfortable and convenient for donors to perform this ultimate act of human kindness," he explained.

“Rotary and RIPAS sincerely hopes that everyone reading this announcement, will take a quick photo and send it on to relatives and friends who may be able to donate. Together we can spread the message far and wide. Let’s make a difference in our community,” he further shared.

Echoing PP Ricky Ng’s call, Haji Iqmal Bin Haji Ismail, RIPAS Blood Bank Supervisor, also encourage members to come forward and donate during the campaign.

“Because every intending donor is tested for suitability, and subsequently, all successfully donated blood will also be further tested by RIPAS to ensure that they come from healthy individuals, all donors in effect gets a free medical check-up each and every time they donate blood.” he added.

"The blood bank needs at least 50 pints of blood a day. The blood is not only for the RIPAS Hospital but will also be distributed to all other hospitals in the country," said Hj Iqmal.

“Brunei’s population is already small, plus many people are further disqualified from donating for various medical reasons, and this is why every donor is important. I would like to especially call upon all healthy youth who are able to donate, to come forward to assist,” he added.

“Therefore, let’s make this blood donation campaign yet another resounding success. All are welcomed to the Lexus Showroom on Saturday, 14th March, 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Light refreshments will, as usual, be served,” added PP Ricky Ng.
