KUALA LUMPUR, 5th April 2010 - Uni.Asia General Insurance Berhad organised a blood donation drive recently as one of its annual corporate social responsibility activities to give back to the community.
The campaign, themed "Donating the Gift of Life" was held at Menara Uni.Asia General Insurance Berhad on April 5. It was aimed at helping to replenish the depleting blood supply of hospitals nationwide.
"Donating blood is one of the best gifts in life that we can give to the community. It costs only a few minutes of our times but makes an immeasurable difference to those in need of multiple transfusions," says David Tan, Chief Executive Officer of Uni.Asia General Insurance Berhad.
The six hours campaign received enthusiastic support from its employees, building tenants and customers alike. It was a success as the number of donors exceeded its previous blood donation campaign, with more than 70 pints of blood collected at the drive.
This is the second blood donation campaign organised by Uni.Asia General Insurance Berhad in collaboration with the National Blood Bank. Since then, the company aimed at making blood donation drive an annual activity instead of a one-time effort.
