June 25, 2010 - Lions Club of Kuala Lumpur North has organized another Blood Donation and Organ Pledge Campaign today at The Mall, Jalan Putra, Kuala Lumpur. It was an encouraging Friday that there were more shoppers came in during lunch time and afternoon Friday prayers. Over 60+ potential blood donors came over to register, however we only managed to collect 32 bags of blood because of either the donor is underweight, on medication or not fulfilling conditions set by the blood bank. Without giving up we managed to get some of them to pledge their organ instead. We have got 19 of them pledged their organ. The following are some of the photos taken during the project:
Over all, we are satisfied with the result as we did better than the last few campaigns carried out by the Blood Bank there. We also get extra 19 persons pledging their organ. The Management, Metroplex Holding Sdn Bhd, is happy with our effort and would like us to arrange another campaign in 3 - 4 months time. Many thanks to OC Teoh Kah Yew and his staff for organizing and helping up the campaign from 10.30am to 5pm, and President Tan Teoh and IPP Lee Yew Foo for supporting the project whole day. The presence of President Elect Wesley, Ln Ken Jern, PP Raymond Kwong and Region Chairperson Tan Poh Ling during lunch time and Ln Tony Yee from 2pm to 4pm were encouraging but more KL North Lions members' participation would be much appreciated. Many thanks to those who came and participated in this meaningful project.
