Red Cross has resumed its voluntary blood donation programme.
The programme was disrupted after the humanitarian organization and its many volunteers turned their attention to last month’s devastating flash floods in Honiara and Guadalcanal.
Red’s Cross’s Blood Donation Officer Deanne Seppy said their Blood bank team had started their blood drives at Don Bosco Institute Technology and Heritage Park Hotel Tuesday this week.
“Quite a number of students and staff of Don Bosco Institute Technology donated blood, only few at Heritage Park Hotel,” she said.
“Our program will continue through this year to ensure blood bank at the National Referral Hospital had enough to supply patients who need blood.”
Ms Seppy thanked Don Bosco and Heritage for their spirit of volunteerism.
“I urge schools, Institutions, private sectors, business houses, church youth groups, government ministries, NGOs and communities to come forward or arrange your own time for blood donation sessions.
“Because it is the community work and it is our responsibilities to play this role in saving lives of the unfortunate ones that have been lying in the hospital helplessly.”
