CALLS have been made to eligible voluntary blood donors to mark the start of this Valentine's month by sharing some liquid love by giving blood.

The call came after the Sathya Sai Service Organisation in conjunction with the Fiji National Blood Services, tertiary institutions and corporate houses conducted a blood drive at TappooCity in Suva over the weekend.

The organisation has been organising regular blood drives around the country over the years

The blood drive at the Capital City saw people from all of walks of life donating blood for someone else's life.

Karunesh Rao, of the Sai MediCare Sathya Sai Service Organisation of Fiji said these blood drives would not have been successful if it was not for the awareness and "call to action" by the media to all the voluntary blood donors.

"The Blood Bank team is coming to a location closer to the donors so that you, your family friends and loved ones can be a part of this 'life saving' deed," he said.
