Media campaign to boost blood reserves

The National Blood Services (NBS) in collaboration with MISA-Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe Union of Journalists (ZUJ) and friends of the late veteran ZBC journalist Freedom Moyo will on Saturday, 28 January 2012 launch a campaign to encourage members of the public to donate blood, according to MISA spokesperson.

The campaign follows the death of Freedom who died at West End Clinic in Harare on Tuesday, 17 January 2012 after sustaining serious injuries in a traffic accident three days earlier.

According to MISA, medical personnel who attended to Freedom struggled to secure emergency supplementary blood in the wake of his excessive bleeding from injuries sustained in the traffic accident.

The event will take place at the NBS offices next to Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals along Mazowe Street in Harare.

A similar event will also take place on the same day in Bulawayo at the NBS/ United Bulawayo Hospitals (UBH).
