Donate blood, save lives



BLOOD donation is good for health and many believe that donors would earn merits through this noble act.

The Kampung Kolam Village Community Management Council (MPKK) together with the Art of Living Penang branch are organising a blood donation campaign at Level 8, 1st Avenue Mall in Magazine Road this Sunday.

Komtar assemblyman Teh Lai Heng said the event would be held from 10am to 5pm.

“A total of 288 blood transfusion bags were collected at the end of last year’s campaign.

“The organisers are aiming for 300 bags this year,” Teh told a press conference at his service centre in Jalan Talipon today.

Teh said that there would be free cholesterol and blood glucose tests at the event.

“Visitors can also take part in the X-Jump cardio exercise and other interesting activities during the campaign,” he said.
