For art lovers

1 April @Suma Orientalis Fine Art, Damansara Heights

Meet The Artist: Ricardo Chavez Tovar - The Subtle Harmony Of A Dead End

Built on the subject of the sacred feminine, Ricardo’s body of work is a crystal of philosophical metaphysics, the unpredictability of results and the itchy questioning of alchemist transmutation of light into visual form for storytelling. Immersed in the air of mystique, his mixed media and installation works induce the viewers into an inner exploration and awaken them to a delightful resonance.

Blood Donation

2 April @ Pusat Darah Negara

Blood is often needed in surgical cases, accident victims, treating leukemia patients, cancer, thalassemia, heart disease, complications of bleeding during childbirth, haemophilia and other conditions.

However, the national blood supply has been running into critical deficiency issues with the Covid-19 pandemic placing pressure on Malaysia’s healthcare systems as blood donation drives and centres ground to a halt during the Movement Control Order (MCO).

As the Health Ministry sent out pleas to Malaysians to come donate blood while rationing blood supplies to alleviate the shortage, there is little reprieve as supplies continue to diminish.

The Health Ministry has also joined in the call for blood donors, pleading for Malaysians to help them save the lives of others.

This is a noble cause for everyone to come forward to donate blood at an immediate rate at the National Blood Center or a nearby blood bank.
