This is a form of XL Axiata's concern for children suffering with cancer. Today, we’re also helping orphans and those in need, as a token of gratitude for our achievement so far. XL Axiata together with the journalist community provide support through blood donation activities that not only bring positive impacts for the children who received the blood, but also for the donors to be healthier."


Desy mentioned that blood donation is now seen as important for maintaining health. People are realizing the personal benefits of donating. Today's drive had 42 participants, resulting in 40 blood bags collected. These donations will go directly to the Medan Children's Oncology Foundation (YOAM) to help children with cancer who require blood assistance.
