Hospitals in Malaysia now are in desperate need of blood supplies. Public are urged to donate blood to help the people in need. Medical and surgical treatments such as cardiac surgery, organ transfusion, thalassemia, and anaemia are all depend on blood transfusion. Those who want to donate blood may head to the nearest Blood Bank Unit or participate in any Blood Donation Campaign hosted for the public.
