HOSPITAL STAFF TAKING DOWN PARTICULARS OF POTENTIAL DONORS

Looking beyond their own needs, comfort and convenience, a group of full-time students of WOU got together with the University’s Staff Recreational Club (SRC) to organise a blood and organ donation campaign at the main campus today.

Organising the campaign helped the students to become more socially aware and responsible. The students’ efforts along with that of the SRC, in line with the University’s corporate social responsibility policy, helped stock up the government’s blood bank at Seberang Jaya Hospital.

More than 50 people, mostly WOU full-time and part-time students, and a few staff including SRC president Dr Andy Liew and Assistant Finance Manager Kheang Bee Nar, showed up to donate blood.

Mohd Roezlan Mohd Rozman, 33, had enrolled in WOU’s Bachelor of Technology (Hons) in Electronics programme in the January 2015 intake. The biomedical officer from Island Hospital has been a zealous donor since his “polytechnic days”. “This is my 13th time. I have been donating since I was 18. I try to do it 2-3 times a year. It’s what I can do in my life for others. Since I can’t help much with money, this is my way of helping other people,” said Roezlan.

Dhemapriya Nagarajan, 25, from Bukit Mertajam, is studying part-time for her Bachelor of Business (Hons) in Banking & Finance degree since enrolling in July 2012. She works as a bank clerk in George Town. “This is about my fifth time donating. I usually donate when it is organised by my office, as this is one way of serving the community.”

Chew Chin Quan, from Greenlane Heights, 22, is pursuing his full-time Bachelor of Business (Hons) in Management programme after enrolling in September 2013. “This is only my second time; the first was last year at the request of a friend to help out someone. I want to continue this regularly whenever I can, as it’s a good effort.”

Tan Zhi Zian, 28, from Tanjung Bungah, Penang, was the sole organ donor and she pledged all her organs. An education counsellor with an agency for four years now, she is currently pursuing her Commonwealth Executive MBA (CeMBA) degree at WOU.

“I have been thinking of pledging for a few years, and was just waiting for somebody to set up a booth or for somewhere convenient. I read in the newspapers of people donating their organs when they pass away. I feel that after I die, my body will be burnt to ashes. So by donating, some parts of me will be still alive, still living. There would be many people who may benefit from the organs I have donated and lead a higher quality life,” said Tan.

Dr Andy expressed his “appreciation to everyone who took time out of their usual routines to participate in this meritorious deed. I also hope more people will adopt the same spirit as Tan and donate their organs to offer others a second chance at life.”
