Twilight Basketball program

BFPNG gives 18 bags of blood to help save lives

The Twilight Basketball program, which is run by the Basketball Federation of Papua New Guinea (BFPNG), saw 50 people volunteer to donate blood at the Taurama Aquatic & Indoor Centre last week.

Many of the Papua New Guinea U-18 national team members got involved donating blood.

BFPNG Chief Executive Officer Joel Khalu said the program is aimed at getting the youth of PNG, aged 16-25, to engage in social responsibility; and one way is to become life time blood donors supporting their community.
