Allianz Malaysia held its nationwide Blood Donation Drive and Organ Donation Pledge campaign in conjunction with Malaysia Day at its Head Office in Kuala Lumpur on 14 September 2018.
The campaign, an annual event since 2014, is held in collaboration with the National Blood Centre, National Transplant Resource Centre and the participating state hospitals. This year’s campaign will be held at six locations from 6 to 27 September 2018 with four locations open to public.
The Health Ministry recently announced its five-year target to raise the permanent blood donors in Malaysia to three percent from the current 2.2 percent. It was also reported in June this year that the ‘O’ blood group was the most common amongst Malaysians, followed by ‘A’ and ‘B’ with ‘AB’ blood group being the rarest.
“As a corporate entity, it is important that we support goals that matters to our society regardless of race, religion or ethnicity. That is the very reason why we have been consistent in organising blood donation drives and organ pledges. We want to raise greater awareness to the importance in giving others a chance at life. Since our first campaign in 2014, we have been able to gather 1,823 blood donors and 582 pledges and we hope that this year we can inspire more people to be part of this noble cause,” said Zakri Khir, Chief Executive Officer of Allianz Malaysia Berhad.
Allianz Malaysia encourages members of the public to head over to their nearest location to support this noble cause. Visit the National Blood Centre’s official website www.pdn.gov.my and the National Transplant Resource Centre’s official website www.dermaorgan.gov.my to check your eligibility.
