Indonesia's Red Cross (PMI) Purbalingga in cooperation with PT. Mahkota Tri Angjaya conducted socialization of blood donation on Wednesday, 24 December 2014 in the company's health unit (UKP) of PT. Mahkota Tri Angjaya. This routine event, which is conducted by PT. Mahkota Tri Angjaya for every three months, was followed by employees who had been registered in the PMI data as well as those who participate voluntarily. Before donating blood, someone has to take enough rest for at least 4 hours. Donating blood after doing a night shift might be dangerous for the donor, dr. Riski explained.
This social event was part of PT Mahkota Tri Angjaya's concern to its surroundings. We are interested in holding this event since it would not only benefit the recipients but also the donor. Therefore, many people chose to do it repetitively in order to help others as well as to gain the benefit of donating blood. Moreover, it has been scientifically proven that donating blood can give health benefit. All in all, donating blood is not only a proof that we care about others, but also our way to live a healthy life.
