Voluntary blood donation is the life blood that helps doctors and other healthcare professionals save lives.
Donated blood in storage means doctors can give patients much needed blood transfusion instead of waiting on loved ones with similar blood types to donate their blood.
Today, the Australian High Commissioner to Ghana, Gregory Andrews voluntarily donated his blood at the National Blood Service.
“I am grateful that Ghanaians share their country with me. So today I gave something back by donating blood at the National Blood Service, Ghana,” he said on Facebook.
Just like most of us who hate needles, Gregory said “nurse Kate made it almost completely painless.”
“Most importantly, I can say that it was a wonderful feeling to walk out knowing my blood will help save the life of someone in Ghana who needs it more than I do,” he added.
Gregory also encouraged others to donate blood to help augment the shortage of blood.
Voluntary blood donation is one of the heroic things one can do to help save lives.
