Every second of every day, people around the world—of all ages and from all walks of life—need blood transfusion to survive. The need for blood is universal, but access to blood for all those who need it is not. Safe blood is a country’s greatest natural resource. To ensure that its citizens have access to safe blood, every country needs voluntary unpaid blood donors who give blood.
Come 8th December 2006, Near-Sea will conduct a 1-Day Blood Donation exercise themed “Giving Blood. The Gift of Life”. This is an in-house campaign organised by Near-Sea and is not open to public for security reasons. The event is a joint community involvement project initiated by Near-Sea, a fraternity under Cougar Express Logistics Pte Ltd in Singapore, with invitation extended to its customer - Robert Bosch Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. Blood donation will be jointly managed by Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahimah.
“Giving Blood. The Gift of Life” is organized as a form of participation as unpaid voluntary blood donation to give blood to the needy in Malaysia. Near-Sea also contributes this Blood Donation as part of its philanthropic effort for the community in Malaysia and hope to raise awareness to the public on blood donation through this in-house exercise.
The 1-Day event will be held in Near-Sea operating office in Petaling Jaya, from 10am to 3pm, where doctors and nurses will be attending to the blood donors.
“Each donor will be given Certificate of Appreciation and a Near-Sea souvenir pen to thank for their altruism towards this drive.” said Ms. Wendy Chung, Deputy General Manager, Near-Sea Logistics Sdn. Bhd.
Conducting this exercise for the first time, Near-Sea targets to reach out to a modest scale of approximately twenty to thirty participants only. Blood collected at this Near-Sea blood donation exercise will be distributed to Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahimah.
