The event witnessed an overwhelming response from donors, illustrating the compassion and selflessness of the people in Ho. Under the theme “Saving Lives, Spreading Hope,” the blood donation drive attracted individuals from all walks of life, including students, professionals, and community members, who recognized the immense value of their contribution.
Even though the rains nearly marred the event, the hospital’s blood unit was abuzz with activity as donors generously gave a part of themselves to provide a lifeline for those battling critical illnesses, undergoing surgeries, or facing emergencies.
Speaking to the media, Mr. Nii Annorbah-Sarpei, Programs Manager of the KGL Foundation, emphasized the importance of such initiatives in maintaining adequate blood reserves.
“Blood is a precious resource, and regular donations are essential to meet the demands of patients in hospitals. By organizing events like this, we not only save lives but also inspire others to become blood donors, creating a sustainable cycle of support and compassion,” he said.
