Red Cross Appeals For Blood Donations For Victims Of Collapsed Building

The Secretary of  Nigerian Red Cross (NRC), Lagos,  Mr Olakunle Lasisi made an appeal for blood donations for victims of the collapsed building on the Lagos Island.

Lasisi made the appeal in an interview  with the News Agency  of Nigeria ( NAN) on Thursday in Lagos.

Speaking on the hashtags, #DonateForItafaji and #savetheitafajichildren trending on social media to solicit for blood donations  from the public,  he said  Red Cross would partake in the exercise.

He also stated that he spoke with the Lagos State Blood Transfusion Service on Wednesday, and confirmed that the information was true.

“It was launched by the MD of the General  Hospital, Lagos  so they can  have  enough  blood  in the bank to assist the casualties of the collapsed building.

” When an incident like this happens, blood  donations are always  required to meet the demand of those in need of blood transfusion.

Lasisi commended the Red Cross volunteers and other Agencies including LASEMA,  LASAMBUS,  NEMA,  FED FIRE and the Nigerian Police whose efforts ensured  lives were saved.
