Organised in collaboration with the Federation of I-Kuan Tao Association, the aim of the blood drive was to help the National Blood

Bank stock up enough supplies in preparation for the upcoming festive season.

“Blood donation is not only aimed at saving another’s life but it can also increase the donor’s metabolism and improve their health,” said Persatuan Ajaran Dewi Kuan Yin chairman Tan Kee Kau in a statement.

He further thanked members of the association and the public for donating.

Tan said the association will be organising more blood donation drives in the coming months and hopes the public will continue to support them.

“As helping others is the fundamental for happiness, as long as you know that someone was rescued because of the blood you donated, the happiness you will feel is just indescribable.” 

Also present at the event were Tian Shang Prayer Hall organising chairman of the blood donation campaign Ng Chew, I-Kuan Tao Malaysia vice-president Tan Kee Piau, secretary-general Mok Wah Hing and committee members Koo Kim Yun and Tai Cheng Keng.
