Fund Raising Health Screening Campaign

I just attent a 3-days Fund Raising Health Screening Campaign in Limbang last week (22nd to 24th Jan). This being the 3rd join project between my company & Lions Club of Limbang Mandarin.

Well the campaign was successfully conducted. On the 1st day of the campaign, 71 participants came to redeem the blood test with vouchers (profiling test consist of Full Blood Picture, Lipid Study, Liver Function Test, Renal Function Test, Hepatitis B Screening, Rheumatoid Factor, Free T4, VDRL, Urine Examination & Hepatitis A IgG at RM88.00). On the 2nd day of the campaign, 86 participants joined in & on the 3rd day (the last day), another 70 participants came for the blood test, make it a total head count of 227 pax.
a
Although the response is not as good as the past 2 years (314 pax in 2006 & 298 pax in 2007 ), it was a great result anyway. Don't forget, Limbang just a small town!
