We invite you to join us in our Blood Donation Drive.
Blood is life! Nearly 50% of in-patient deaths among children under-five are attributed to malaria which causes severe anaemia. Therefore, 50% of all blood collected in Uganda is used to treat these children. Also, haemorrhage contributes 34% to all maternal deaths in the country. 30% of donated blood is used to save lives of pregnant women with complications of pregnancy and child birth, including haemorrhage and malaria-induced anaemia. On top of these, accidents, sickle cell anaemia and other emergencies all calls for need of sufficient blood in the country.
