Impressive turnout at Bridget Bonnie, friends’ blood donation exercise

One of the donors going through the process

The Founder of 18Plus4NDC, a youth wing of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Ms Bridget Bonnie and friends last Saturday turned out in their num­bers for a blood donation exercise at the 37 Military Hospital in Accra.

The lifesaving exercise, the fourth edition was to mark the young poli­tician’s birthday.

Speaking to The Spectator during the exercise, Ms Bonnie said, the gesture would go a long way to save lives at the facility.

“People need blood for survival at hospitals across the country. Donat­ing blood with my friends was our way to support the 37 Military Hospi­tal in their quest to save lives,” she stated.

She added that, “it was heart­warming to see several healthy and vibrant youth coming around to donate blood to save lives.”

“This is one of the random ges­tures to show appreciation to God for sustaining my life over the years,” she explained.

Over the years, she said, the dona­tion had become a regular activity on her birthday and looked forward to extend the gesture to other health facilities in the country.

The 18Plus4NDC, is a network of social democrats that upholds the principles and values of the NDC with members from across the coun­try.
