Blood Donation Campaign at Penfibre Sdn. Berhad, Toray Group (Malaysia)
Every minute of the day, someone out there urgently needs blood transfusion to survive. As blood are needed for scheduled surgeries or saving accident victims, our little blood contribution could save a life. It is with this in mind that Penfibre, with the support of the other sister companies within Toray Group (Malaysia) organized a "Blood Donation Campaign" on the 9th September 2014 at Penfibre Sdn. Berhad, Prai.
With the support and partnership of Hospital Seberang Jaya, our CSR effort attracted some 86 volunteers, comprising employees from the two divisions of Penfibre, sister companies and other business associates. Present to render encouragement and support to the campaign were Penfibre’s Managing Director Mr. Ken Kurokawa and other senior personnel of the Company.
By the end of the one-day’s campaign, lasting from 9am to 4pm, some 75 pints of blood have been collected. Base on the National Blood Bank Malaysia’s guideline of "One (1) pint of blood to save three (3) lives", some 225 lives could be saved by our Company CSR effort. As a token of appreciation for the untiring efforts of the volunteers, each blood donor was presented with goody bag, refreshment and snack.
Following the great success of this first blood donation drive, the Company together with the other sister companies within Toray Group (Malaysia) hope to continue with this CSR activity yearly. Besides helping National Blood Bank Malaysia to collet sufficient blood during critical times, this meaningful effort will encourage the spirit of compassion and volunteerism among our employees.
