If you’ve ever given blood, you know that they usually give you a free snack after to replenish some energy and glucose levels. These snacks usually consist of cookies, or a juice box. But this organisation decided to give out something more savoury.
Hospital Sultanah Nora Ismail (HSNI) and a NGO mistakenly gave out pork flavoured instant noodles to the donors during a blood drive in a Johor Bahru mall recently.
It eventually caught the attention of the Ministry of Health (KKM) and they filed a complaint to Batu Pahat police chief Ismail Dollah.
The blood donors reportedly received the gift bags containing pork noodles while the NGO was present at the donation site.
The organising committee chairman for the event Lou Kok Meng said they would take full responsibility, Harian Metro reported.
“We take note of the matter and we are prepared to cooperate with the authorities probing the incident.”
