Lesotho Blood Transfusion Services-LBTS will commemorate this year’s blood donor day through blood donation campaign in Bela-Bela, Berea and Maseru this Wednesday.
LBTS’ Principal Laboratory Technologist Mr Khotso Kalake, said the objective is to collect the much needed blood as there is shortage in the blood bank.
Kalake said the theme of this year’s commemoration which is “Give blood, give plasma, share life, share often”, emphasises the role every person can play, in donating blood.
The commemoration is also intended to honour and celebrate voluntary blood donors and calls on the public to donate blood regularly.
World Blood Donor Day is commemorated annually on the 14th of June to celebrate and thank voluntary blood donors around the world for their gift of saving lives.
