It is quite common that during Chinese New Year there will be higher demand for blood while the number of blood donors dwindles. Anticipating this, and also in conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebration, the Regional Management Committee (RMC) of Melaka and Northern Johore organised a blood donation campaign at Hong Leong Bank (HLB), Ong Kim Wee Branch on 6 February 2010. The committee was targeting to collect 75 packets initially, but due to the overwhelming support we got from the public, we collected 98 bags in the end! That was indeed a morale boost for us and the Melaka General Hospital was very happy with our effort as that was one of their highest collections that have taken place within a period of 4 hours.
