Blood Donation Day: Unity in Diversity
The objectives of the event are to create widespread awareness about the scarcity of blood in local banks and the immense significance of voluntary contributions in saving lives. It also sought to extend its reach to both local residents and the international community, encouraging first-time donors to step forward and fostering a culture of regular blood donation.
By grappling with real-life challenges in managing, planning, and executing an event of this magnitude, the students gained hands-on insights that will undoubtedly prove invaluable in their future careers. Furthermore, the event highlighted the importance of collaborative efforts between academic institutions, non-governmental organisations, and government agencies in addressing pressing societal issues.
Dr. Khairun Nisa Binti Mustaffa Halabi, the Dean of the Faculty Creative Industry, remarked during the opening that this event exemplifies the essence of experiential learning, where students translate theory into practice.
Speaking about the student’s commitment, she expressed her admiration, saying, “I’m truly amazed by the dedication and cooperation exhibited by all the students. They’ve truly made this event a resounding success.”
The results were nothing short of remarkable. City University’s Blood Donation Day managed to collect over 90 bags of blood, demonstrating the power of collective action and community engagement. This event transcended its immediate impact by nurturing a sense of social responsibility among students and participants alike.
