Posted by Editor on Jul 11, 2017
On the 7th and 8th of July, as part of the activities marking the installation of a new District Rotaract Representative (DRR), Rotarians and rotaractors gathered at the Women Development Center in Abakaliki to donate blood to save lives of patients in our hospitals. We invited the University of Nigeria teaching hospital Enugu and the Federal Teaching Hospital in Abakaliki to come for screening of of volunteers and collecting blood for use by patients. We were able to raise 59 units(pints) of blood at the end of the program. 25 units was donated to UNTH, while 34 units was donated to the Federal teaching hospital in Abakaliki.The public were also informed through the media (radio Nigeria FM Abakaliki and Enugu respectively) in their news broadcast that rotarians and their partners have donated blood which has been deposited at the mentioned hospital for easy assessment and use.
