Singapore — Workers’ Party politician Jamus Lim, who donated blood on Thursday (Aug 27) and then took to social media to encourage others to do the same thing, as been praised by the online community for “leading by example”.

Dr Lim, who was in the WP team that won in Sengkang GRC in the recent elections,  uploaded a selfie on his Facebook page that day with a packet of Milo in hand after the donation at the Anchorvale Community Club.

Anchorvale is one of the neighbourhoods in Sengkang GRC.

“Today’s drive yielded 105 donations, and with up to three lives saved per donor (I’ve been told), that’s 315 potential lives saved!” said Dr Lim. “Giving blood is one of the most costless and meaningful ways to give back to the community, and I encourage all who can to consider doing so,” he added.
