BANDUNG - 129 one-hundred-time blood donors from West Java were dispatched by Vice Governor of West Java Deddy Mizwar at Sate Building, Saturday afternoon (2/18). They will receive Satya Lencana Kebaktian Sosial Award from the President of the Republic of Indonesia.
In his speech, Deddy Mizwar expressed his appreciation to the blood donors who have done the blood donation for 100 times.
"It is very great. Because to reach 100 times of donations means that it has been done for 25 years. It was such a very long journey," he said.
However, the Vice Governor also noted about the lack of donor numbers from West Java during 2016.
"We become the third province after East Java and Special Capital District of Jakarta for the number of donors, although we are the province with the largest population in Indonesia. We have to think about the possible cause, whether it is about the lack of facilities or the socialization," he explained.
The 100-time bloods donors come from 15 districts in West Java with the largest numbers were from Bandung City. On the 19th of February or Sunday evening, they will receive Satya Lencana Kebaktian Sosial Award from the President of RI in Jakarta.
