As part of its corporate social responsibilities, MTN Ghana has organized a blood donation exercise to support the Upper East regional blood bank as part of the Valentine’s Day celebration.

MTN Ghana Foundation is set to collect at least 7,000 units of blood in the 2024 edition of the annual MTN “Save A Life Campaign” Blood Donation Exercise across the country, 14th February 2024. The blood donation in the region took place at the Bolgatanga Technical Institute, Bolgatanga Senior High School and the Zamse Senior Technical School with a target of 250 units of blood.

Speaking to the media, MTN team lead for Upper East and North East regions Martin Yaw Kumobah said upon request and concerns by the National Blood Service of inadequacy of blood stores at the various blood banks across the country, MTN deemed it more than necessary to use Valentine’s Day for the blood donation.

”Today we are doing a “Save A Life Campaign” project through the MTN Foundation and we have been doing this for more than a decade, so the main reason for this Save A Life project is in response to the Ghana Blood Service’s request that they need blood all the time. So through the MTN Foundation, we responded to the call over ten years now on 14th February, which is on Valentine’s Day, we in MTN choose to use this day to donate blood to replenish all regional blood banks across Ghana”

A Donor Nurse at the Upper East Regional Hospital Blood Bank, Anafo Augustine, who led the blood bank team at the Bolgatanga Technical Institute speaking to the media, applauded MTN Ghana for the Valentine’s Day gift given to the regional blood bank. She stated that there is always a constant need for blood, especially in the maternity ward, hence the support by MTN Ghana is appreciable and welcome. Mrs. Anafo used the opportunity to appeal to other organizations and individuals to emulate the same, which she said will go a long way to save lives.
