Where to park?

The parking space in GH normally can’t handle the visiting crowd in the morning, if you would like to drive yourself to there, will suggest to go after 3pm. Other wise you might find your self difficult to get a parking space. Other alternative will be get a ride-hailing (Uber, Grab, etc) or drive motor.

You may park

How long will it take?

The whole process from register until sitting at refreshment area will be around 30 – 60 minutes depend on your physical body condition that day.


 
 
For a healthy adult in Malaysia (18 – 60 years old), if you would max out the number, you may achieve maximum of 168 times of blood donation in your lifetime. With average of 450ml per donation, maximum can achieve 75.6 liter of blood donate and saving lots of people in need. Do your best and see how many times you can achieve in your life time.
