Blood donation is among other donations that actually has direct functional benefits to your body. It can act as a mini check-up for you, your iron levels will stay balanced, your blood will flow better and you could even live longer.
The benefits are not just biologically rewarding, you could also lose some weight and gain it back with the free food given by the hospital. Yup, it’s quite an experience you know.
With that said, Sibu Hospital in Sarawak needs your help! Or should I say your blood.
The hospital is running critically low on blood supply, especially O positive and B positive types, The Star reports.
The blood bank assistant information officer Lily Sinta said in a statement yesterday (Jan 17) that the shortage was due to high demand.
