Blood drive goes rural

Salaseini Moceiwai
Thursday, April 17, 2014

ASSISTING the Labasa Hospital blood bank with the much-needed gift of life, members of the Siberia Satya Sai Youth Mandali organised a blood drive in the area early this week.

People from all walks of life took time away from their busy schedules to give blood.

Mandali secretary Rakesh Mudaliar said this was the first time for them to organise such an event aimed at assisting the bank with its blood stock.

"We managed to collect seven pints of blood and we are delighted to be part of this good cause," he said.

"The members decided to organise the drive because we felt this was a proper thing to do for the purpose of saving lives.

"Who knows, the blood we donated will be able to save a child or an adult. It's good that we started off on a high note and now, we will work closely with the bank so we can have more of this activity in the future."

Mr Mudaliar was thankful to those who generously gave the gift of life.

Bank officials at the drive also conveyed their gratitude to the people for their tremendous assistance.
