Message from the Director
Welcome ....
Have you ever needed a blood transfusion? Do you know any relatives or close friends who required a blood transfusion? Well, maybe not, but do you know if you or your loved ones will need a blood transfusion in the near future? I am sure that most of us cannot answer that question. However many people receiving blood today certainly did not know they will be requiring a blood transfusion a few days ago.
I am also certain that all of us would like to rest assured that if we require blood, it is readily available and safe to be transfused. The aim for the existence of our blood transfusion service is to provide a sustainable and safe blood supply. The idea behind this site is to inform all interested on what we do at the blood bank.
However the bottom line in all blood banks is that blood must be available. The only people who can guarantee this are the generous, altruistic donors. There are donors on cold winter days and in scorching summer heat. There are donors who come within hours when we call them. There are donors who sometimes wait an hour for them to donate. To all these donors I sincerely thank them. They have saved and are saving lives daily. To those who may donate but are not donors, please, there are children, mothers and fathers, elderly people who need your donation. It costs you nothing, it may be slightly inconvenient, time consuming etc, however what is all this next to saving a life?
If after browsing through this site you become a donor or recruit a new donor this site and all the work put into it would certainly have been worth it.
