UNS — Universitas Sebelas Maret (UNS) Surakarta held a regular blood donation on Wednesday (12/1/2022) in the Faculty of Teacher Training and Education (FKIP) Auditorium. This blood donation is a collaboration among FKIP UNS, Dharma Wanita Persatuan (DWP) UNS, Indonesia Redcross (PMI) Surakarta, and Student Volunteer Corps (KSR) UNS.
This blood donation was also attended by the Rector of UNS, Prof. Dr. Jamal Wiwoho, and the Dean of FKIP UNS, Dr. Mardiyana. In his opening remark, Dr. Mardiyana hoped that this blood donation event could benefit many people.
Prof. Jamal also appreciated the event, considering it is a regular occasion held in different faculty each month.
“At first, this blood donation was not structured, then I discussed with RKPU and the executive board so that DWP could hold regular blood donation on the 11th or nearing it. This (schedule) is to make it identical to 11 Maret. We have 11 faculties and two schools; around a year, it (the blood) donation will return to your faculty,” Prof. Jamal explained.
Prof. Jamal also wanted to prepare an art activity held for each faculty each month.
“We try in one faculty, if once a month, it will only be once a year (for each faculty). Let’s revive the harmony in life,” he added.
Prof. Jamal hoped that blood donation could benefit many people. A drop of blood is crucial for those needing it. Humas UNS
