BAIDURI BANK GROUP ORGANISES ANNUAL BLOOD DONATION DRIVE
12th June 2014

Bandar Seri Begawan, 12th June 2014 – Green bankers rolled up their sleeves yesterday to contribute to an important cause: blood donation. The event, hosted every year, was held at the Learning & Development Centre at Baiduri Bank Head Office.

This year’s blood donation drive was organized with the theme "Everyone has a Type" aimed to help replenish the low blood supplies faced by the National Blood Bank at the Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) Hospital.

Senior Manager of Baiduri Bank’s Human Resources and Finance Division and member of the Baiduri Bank Management Committee, Ms Veronica Chong, said that blood donating is a good practice, and she has been doing it every year during the drive.

"There is an overall feeling of goodness and satisfaction when donating blood," she said. "A lot of people are fearful of donating blood because of the needle but it’s not painful, and donating only one pint of blood can save up to three lives."

"One advice I have for them is to stay relaxed. If you are scared of needles, look away, or better yet, talk with your colleagues, I’m sure they’ll also appreciate the distraction."

The event was organised as part of the Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme. It is an annual event held to aid patients in need of specific types of blood urgently.

The Baiduri Bank Group is also an active supporter and major sponsor of the annual World Blood Donor Day.

Baiduri Bank Group has also just wrapped up their yearly charity golf event, The Baiduri Masters – an initiative that regularly provides financial support for child development programmes in Brunei such as Pusat Ehsan, Child Development Centre (CDC), SMARTER and the Learning Ladders Society.
