Toray Plastics (Malaysia) Sdn. Berhad
Blood Donation Campaign at Toray Plastics (Malaysia) on 29th Oct 2014
In-collaboration with the Blood bank of Seberang Jaya General Hospital, TPM recently organised a blood donation campaign at the Company’s premise on the 29th October 2014.
Fifty individuals, comprising TPM staff members and ten colleagues from Penfabric and TML came forward in volunteering their selfless acts of saving life. Coordinated for the first time by the Administration Department, the blood donation campaign is part of the TGM’s CSR activities organised for the year.
According to Puan Norashikin, the representative from Seberang Jaya Hospital who led the 10 medical team members for the donation drive, there is a constant demand for regular fresh blood supply from all hospitals in Malaysia because blood can only be stored for a limited time before usage. She extended the hospital’s appreciation to all the volunteers as blood is the most precious present, the “gift of life” that anyone can give to another person.
She remarked that a decision to donate one’s blood can also save several lives, if the blood is separated into components, namely red cells, platelets and plasma, which are used individually for patients with specific health conditions and needs.
The Company thanks all volunteers and Seberang Jaya General Hospital in making our Blood donation campaign a great success.
