Speaking to the Daily Graphic, the Head of the medical team of the Accra Area Blood Centre of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Alhaji Gambo Iddris Wangabi, lauded the residents for their desire to support the hospital to save lives.
He said the hospital urgently needed more blood to be able to cater for emergency cases.
He further called on individuals and organisations to donate blood to the hospital in order for it to meet the demands of other hospitals in the country.
Speaking on behalf of the National Chief Imam, the Executive Secretary of IPASEC, Alhaji Khuzaima Osumanu Mohammed, said another blood donation exercise would be held in other Zongo communities to show the support of the Muslim communities to the hospital.
He, therefore, called on Muslims to be willing to give out to support the hospital in fulfillment of the five pillars of Islam.
