Become a blood donor

By Meluse Kapatamoyo

I was coming from the Zambia National Blood Transfusion Services (ZNBTS) located at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) yesterday when the bus i was on got involved in an accident. Fortunately, there were no serious injuries recorded. But had the accident been fatal, its most likely that we would have needed blood transfusions to survive.

Donate blood and save a life
 In that bus was your mother, father, sister, brother, auntie, nephew, cousin etc but saving our lives would not have been that easy because the availability of BLOOD at ZNBTS cannot always be guranteed. Blood donation in Zambia is very low and lives are being lost because of it. I say thank you to all the BLOOD DONORS and if you are not one, please think about becoming one. You never know whose life you will save, it just might even be yours.
