“This is my first event that I handle on campus and we achieve our target for people to come and donate their blood”, remarked Muhammad Azrin Shah Head of Program. 
The organizer of the event had taken a few initiatives to promote their programs. One  of the few initiatives taken was to create online forms. The organizer said it had received massive response from the students within a certain period of time. “Within 1 hour without the poster we got 46 responses who had registered for blood donation 68%  from female students and others were male students.”. 

Total for people who came and joined the blood donation was 80. “Second time we blast the poster with google from the event we have reached our target of 80 people who have participated in this program, however they also promote their videos and reels about the event and post in social media to show our donation event.”

The enthusiasm and generosity displayed by our Kolej community today reaffirm our collective commitment to helping those in need.

The event featured a well- coordinated setup, with multiple donation stations equipped with trained medical personnel ensuring a smooth and efficient process. Strict adherence to safety protocols and hygiene standards was paramount, with every precaution taken to safeguard the health and well-being of donours amid the ongoing pandemic.

Among the donors was  Muhammad Azrin Shah, student FKAB from Civil Engineering  and also head of the programme who was involved in this event. “ I believe that donating blood is a simple yet impactful way to support our local healthcare system,” they expressed. “ Knowing that my contribution could potentially save lives is incredibly rewarding.” 

The experience during the blood donation process makes Muhammad Azrin want to join it again even though it makes people nervous but it such a good experience, said “ when i follow the instructions to be done before going to the blood donation screening I am very nervous and my body starts to feel bad because I so nervous, but the staff said when to donate make sure we eat first and have a good rest it is important for us to have a good condition when we participate for this program.”

Nurul Faezah Mohd Yaccob, student FSSK from Media Communication , said, “ I'm a regular blood donor, I donate every 6 months because it gives a huge benefit to our body while helping people in need.”

Reflecting on the event’s impact the Kolej Burhanuddin Helmi community disperses, the echoes of their collective goodwill and humanitarianism resonate far beyond the campus grounds, serving as a beacon of hope and inspiration for others to follow suit. In a world often beset by challenges, moments like these remind us of the extraordinary power of coming together to enact positive change.
