NamBTS, Shincheonji, Khomas Governor out to boost blood bank stock
■ By Veronica Amaral
IT was a hive of activity in the northern industry area last weekend as Windhoek residents flocked to donate blood.
The once-off partnership between the Blood Transfusion Service of Namibia (NamBTS), Shincheonji Volunteers, and the Khomas region governor’s office organised a blood drive to restock the country’s low blood banks.
The blood drive initiative also aimed to encourage people to get involved in saving lives through blood donation. Speaking at the occasion, Khomas region governor Laura Mcleod-Katjirua said a donation can save three lives.
The governor expressed excitement and gratitude for being part of this collaborative effort with NamBTS and the church.
She also thanked the NamBTS for consistently raising awareness about blood bank shortages and eagerly anticipated participating in Shincheonji Volunteers’ future social projects at both the constituency and regional levels.
