Blood Donation Drive 5.0 | MBO

Blood Donation Drive 5.0 at MBO

The need for blood transfusions in Malaysia is ever growing but the number of donors still remain at approximately 2.5%, resulting in a shortage of blood supply at hospitals. Average daily medical services throughout the country require nearly 2,000 blood bags for use by almost 1,000 patients. Although the number may seem small, this might still be a problem.

Blood banks need a constant supply of donations, as red blood cells can only last a maximum of 42 days, while platelets can only be kept for five to seven days. Plasma can be frozen and if kept in the right conditions, can keep well for years.

In response to the National Blood Bank’s cries for help, MBO Cinemas teams up with St John’s Ambulance for their 5th annual blood donation drive which will take place at MBO Cinemas nationwide from 17 – 19 August 201811am – 6pm.

 

The theme for this year’s campaign – Blood Connects Us All – stresses on the importance of how Malaysians with different blood groups can be united through this single act of selflessness and share the same goal to help top up the depleting blood supply at the National Blood Bank, which usually tends to drop drastically before festive seasons and school holidays.
