MIRI: Sarawak Oil Palms Ber­had (SOPB) held its first bien­nial blood dona­tion drive yester­day at MRC Miri Train­ing Insti­tute after it has been brought to a tem­por­ary halt due to the Covid19 out­break in 2020.

The blood dona­tion cam­paign is part of SOPB’s cor­por­ate social respons­ib­il­ity (CSR) programme and is held twice a year in sup­port of Miri Hos­pital Blood Bank.

“Hope­fully this effort could assist the blood bank to over­come the short­age of blood supply. We would like to thank the pub­lic for their sup­port towards our blood dona­tion drive, as well as our staff mem­bers who stepped for­ward and donated blood,” said Assist­ant Head of Sup­port and Ser­vices of SOPB, Joseph Ling.

The blood dona­tion cam­paign man­aged to col­lect 80 pints of blood from 95 par­ti­cipants and each donor received a goodie bag and a bottle of Mer­ris Pure Veget­able Cook­ing Oil pro­duced loc­ally in SOPB’s refinery.
