Each one of you is a hero in your own right, and your actions have left an indelible mark on the lives of those who have received the precious gift of blood.
This year's theme, “Give blood, give plasma, share life, share often" reminds us of the vital importance of ensuring a stable and safe blood supply for patients in need. As we face unprecedented challenges and uncertainties, the demand for blood has become even more critical.

On this special day, I encourage you to share your experiences and stories as blood donors. Let us spread awareness about the importance of blood donation and inspire others to join this noble cause. By sharing our journeys, we can dispel myths and misconceptions surrounding blood donation, instill confidence, and motivate new donors to step forward.
I would also like to express our heartfelt appreciation to all the organizations, sponsors, and supporters who have stood by us in our mission. Your contributions have enabled us to carry out vital programs, raise awareness, and provide essential resources to ensure the safety and well-being of our blood donors.
Lastly, I urge you all to continue supporting the Malaysia Blood Donor Society as we strive to make a lasting impact.
