All is set for a blood donation exercise that is expected to happen tomorrow. The Union of May Borns (UMABO) in the Upper East Region is expected to tomorrow, Saturday, May 21, 2022, hold a blood donation exercise in Navrongo; the capital of the Kassena Nankana Municipality.
The blood donation exercise has been done every year, for the past 11 years. This is according to the President of UMABO, William Nlanjerbor Jalulah.
He said this when he spoke to Kennedy Zongbil on A1 Radio’s Reporter’s Visit.
“This particular exercise is part of our annual activities to support the hospitals. Normally, we select different hospitals for the blood donation [exercise]. This year, we have decided to go to the War Memorial Hospital. The set-up will be at the St. John Bosco’s College of Education. A team from the War Memorial Hospital will be detailed to come and carry out the exercise,” he said.
Mr. Jalulah continued to say that “this programme over the years has been successful, through the contributions of members; the dues, special donations and contributions.”
The President of UMABO who doubles as the General Manager for A1 Radio, a subsidiary of the Agreed Best Communication Limited, called on residents in the area to show up and donate blood for a worthy cause.
“We are encouraging all residents in Navrongo and all other communities around the St. John Bosco’s College of Education to come out in their numbers to let us donate blood to replenish the blood bank of the War Memorial Hospital.”
“It is one of the critical health installations in the region and for that matter, running short of blood is a sign of danger for anybody who could possibly be needing blood and would be at that centre. When we talk about blood, it can affect anybody; it doesn’t matter who you are,” he said.
