Loop PNG observed this morning as students lined up outside the university’s arts building to have their bloods tested before actually donating.
Student coordinator Rosemary Mawe said this is the first time, after a while, for the school of Business and Public Policy master’s in business administration students to organise such an event.
“This is more or less a lead up to the Masters Pinnacle Event for 2017, which is expected to take place at the end of the week at UPNG.”
Mawe said the MBA students are glad to have the backing of the vice-chancellor and the university council.
The theme of the Masters Pinnacle Event is ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’.
Today’s blood drive demonstrates the UPNG MBA’s social responsibility to the UPNG community and student body.
The blood drive runs through from 9am to 4pm in the afternoon and is open to the university students and the staff.
They hope to continue the drive in future.
