ACCRA goes RED Blood Donation Drive

The National Blood Service, Ghana in collaboration with a number of companies organized a massive blood donation exercise on the Friday 6th December, 2013 (Farmers’ Day).

This drive was aimed at avoiding shortage of blood during the Christmas festivities, knowing the dangers that come with the celebrations. The exercise took place at the New Southern Area Blood Centre located at Korle Bu Awotse Kojo, behind the Korle Bu ECG and adjacent to Korle Bu ECG.DSC02237

About 250 people showed up: some to eat khebab, some to give blood, some to play some pool, others to mingle with our heroes who give their blood to save the lives of others.

There were lots of games (ludo, oware, playing cards, pool and video games) to  play and of course, lots to eat as they socialize with other blood donors.

Together the participation of the media and the donor groups like MamaYe, CYB, Leo Club, Grace Temple Youth Ministries, Metro, Viasat, TV Africa, TV3, Adom and so on made the event a success.

Blood donation was never this fun!!

In all, 186 life-saving units collected.

A big THANKS goes to all the groups that were there to make this programme a success. new-11
