Blood donation

Oil Search staff donate blood

“I imagined myself lying in hospital in need of blood and there wasn’t a single bag available,” said Ms Kilip, a first-time donor and Oil Search’s Government Affairs Advisor.

“I plan on donating blood again in three months as there are associated health benefits as well.”

Noel Tomdia, a regular blood donor and an Inventory Controller at Oil Search, feels strongly that one should always take the opportunity to save a life when it presents itself. “I have made a pledge to donate blood every time I am able to.”
