Sathya Sai blood drive

WHILE many associate the Sathya Sai Service Organisation of Fiji with flood relief work, national president Mohan Lal said the charitable body was very active in a whole range of community aid projects such as hosting blood drives.

"Flood relief work is only one aspect of our organisation," he said.

"We do many activities like teaching values, offering medical services and clinics and also collect blood for hospitals.

"Blood drives are planned in advance and held on a three-monthly basis all-year around and the reason for this is the simple fact that hospitals in the Western Division are always in need of blood."

Yesterday, the Sathya Sai team held a drive at the MH's car park on Main Street which drew about 80 donors.

"While we welcome all donors with open arms, there are a few basic prerequisites like non-remunerated volunteer, must be aged between 16-65 years of age, must be free from medication 24 hours prior to donating and refrain from taking alcohol 24 hours before donating blood," said Mr Lal.

He said the charitable organisation survived and assisted the needy through donations.
