Annual Blood Donation Campaign on 19 May 2014

A Blood Donation Campaign, jointly organised by the KL Bar Social, Art & Culture Committee and the KL Court with the assistance of the National Blood Bank, was held on 19 May 2014 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at Level 2 of the Kuala Lumpur Court Complex at Jalan Duta. Members of the Bar, Court staff and members of the public nobly came forward to participate in this Blood Donation Drive.

A total of 81 donors registered. Unfortunately, only 69 were eligible to donate. The 12 were rejected because they were either underweight, having high blood pressure or low blood pressure, had recent piercings or tattoos, or had lived in the United Kingdom from 1980 till 1996 or in Europe between 1980 until the present.  A total of 69 units of blood were collected from the caring donors.

Thank you to all those who donated blood and to those who assisted in making this event a success.
