What has been accomplished
out several activities such as interview sessions with the frequent blood
donors, non-blood donors and the professional, we were able to gain an insight
regarding their opinions on blood donation. We have also walked around the
campus to promote our blood donation campaign. After several attempts, we were
able to get in touch with the National Blood Bank to organize a blood donation
event which was held on the 4th of October 2019 at Sunway College.
As social media is powerful, we have been
constantly posting information through Instagram and Facebook to create
awareness by educating and providing more information about blood donation to
the public. Through social media, we were also able attract participants to our
event. During the blood donation event, after the blood donors have donated
their blood, they were asked to randomly pick a note from the lucky draw box
which is either about the facts or the benefits of blood donation. After
picking one, they have posted it on Instagram to share the information with
For the blood donation event which was held on 4th October 2019, there were 32 participants in total. 18 of them were first-time donors while 10 of them were frequent blood donors, The remaining 4 of them did not meet the requirements therefore they were not allowed to make a donation. We were able to achieve the goal of our project by turning a total of 18 non-blood donors into blood donors. We believe that when more people are aware of the issue and learned the importance of it, they will be more willing to make an attempt to help others.
