Health Department thanked for involvement in Blood Drive

The Port Moresby General Hospital and the Corporate Blood Drive team has thanked the National Department of Health for getting involved in the Corporate Blood Drive.

The CBD team managed to collect a total of 15 life-saving bags of blood this week.

Fifty-year-old, Rossie Gerald who works in the Health Secretary’s office was delighted to donate her blood once again and first donated in 2010. 

She encourages youths to come forward also, there’s no better feeling then saving someone’s life”. 
Sister in- charge, Sr Matilda Weber said during the festive week, the blood team did not collect the much-required number of blood bags because most of the corporate houses had closed for Christmas and New Year celebrations.

Sr Weber is appealing to the public, those between the ages of 18 to 60, to come forward and visit the PMGH blood bank centre and donate blood.
The blood centre is now open seven days between 8am and 3pm everyone is welcome to walk in and donate blood.
