Staff donate to blood bank

November 1, 2012

In the Maldives, there is a very high need for blood donation and requires major public awareness on blood donation. This year the theme is ‘every donor is a hero”. Rightly so, we donate blood to save lives. With an endemic thalasaemia situation and more than half of the pregnant women in the country being anaemic, the need and the potential need for blood is very high. Despite the need, there are many challenges. Firstly willing donors are scarce. Perhaps myths associated with donation. Major awareness creation is needed.

In an effort to imcrease and improve blood availability, ADK Hospital also have developed a small blood bank where blood can be stroed for emergency needs. The Blood Bank is open for donations and those willing to donate can register with the ADK Hospital laboratory.

Those willing to donate can contact the Hospital Laboratory by phone (3300240) or send an email to css@adkenterprises.com. Today, as a gesture of good will, ADK Hospital staff donated blood to the Bank and all levels of staff participated in the donations.
