Blood donation activities are held annually
Uganda faces a perennial lack of blood in many major health care facilities. The National Blood Bank based at the Uganda Blood Transfusion Services (UBTS) also lacks the necessary facilities and equipment to safely store blood even in cases where they manage to collect it.
We aim to sensitise people to donate blood whenever there is a drive to collect blood. Efforts are also being made to help UBTS aquire the necessary resources and equipment to help them carry out their mandate. There is need to educate the community about the importance of blood donation as they or their fellow community members are beneficiaries of this service which is also provided free of charge in case of need.
