Penfibre's Blood Donation Campaign 2015

Following the success of the first blood donation drive conducted last year, Penfibre once again organised its second blood donation campaign on the 14th May 2015. Supported by the Blood Bank of Seberang Jaya General Hospital, the blood collection is aimed at helping the National Blood Bank Malaysia to stock up sufficient supplies, in view of the coming Hari Raya festival where supply is expected to be low. It also help to foster better spirit of compassion and volunteerism among our employees. The one-day donation campaign attracted some 90 volunteers, comprising employees of the three Divisions within Penfibre and resident contractors. Present to render encouragement and support to the campaign were Fibre’s Plant Manager cum Director Mr. K. Nogami and the Plant Manager of Film Division Mr. M. Kuno. By the end of the one-day’s campaign, lasting from 9am to 4pm, some 67 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 201 lives could be saved by our Company’s CSR effort. As a token of appreciation for the untiring efforts, each blood donor was presented with refreshment from the Hospital as well as goody bag from the Company. With keen enthusiasm and strong support of everyone, the Company certainly looks forward to another campaign next year.
