Business leader and Managing Director of Cipla Quality Chemicals Limited has asked corporate companies and government agencies to embrace blood donation drives to save mothers, children and accident victims on dire need of blood.
Presiding over world blood donor day celebration under the theme: safe blood for all Katongole noted that Uganda Blood Transfusion Services(UBTS) lacks sufficient blood supply for the increased people on demand.
“Every body needs blood despite of our colours. We should therefore look for close partnership to mobilise blood donation drives in our calendar to ensure that we raise enough blood for our people,” Katongole said.
UBTS Director Dorothy Kyeyune urged finance ministry to allocate more funds to the institution to ensure that the bank carries out its blood mobilisation drives country wide.
She appealed to entire public to voluntarily donate blood to ensure that the agency meets hospital requirements. she noted that 70% of blood comes from secondary schools and few voluntary donors.
UBTS is a semi autonomous organisation in the ministry of health whose core functions focuses on supplying safe blood to hospitals.
