BREWERIES PARTICIPATE IN CORPORATE BLOOD DRIVE
SP Brewery recently participated in the Corporate Blood Drive last month with staff donating in Port Moresby and Lae.
Leading the Corporate Blood Drive for the Port Moresby General Hospital Anna Megueria thanked SP Brewery for committing its staff members to this important cause.
“Currently at the hospital, we need at least 150 bags a week and we always fall short. This Corporate Blood drive is specifically for companies to participate in the months of October & November to donate.”
SP Brewery’s Port Moresby office collected 27 bags with Lae Brewery recording 11 bags.
“It’s good to encourage individuals to get into the practice of donating blood; you never know when you will need it. Giving blood just takes 5-10 minutes, with all our equipment sterile, needles are used only once and discarded,” said Ms Megueria.
A loyal donor is Gill Hara with over 20 visits, what’s more impressive with Gill is that he has a very rare blood type of AB.
Blood donations can help anybody who needs it. Modern processing techniques mean that a single blood donation, when separated into its components, cans help at least 3 different patients.
