Shortage of blood – please donate

Due to the increased requirement of blood for dengue patients and other patients who required blood, the national blood bank is running low on its stocks and the National Blood Transfusion Centre appeals to the general public to donate blood to save the lives of those who may require it.

According to its Director Dr. Rukshan Bellana, every year from January to April there is a lull in blood donations.

Therefore, he requested the public to volunteer to donate blood in order to avoid a shortage of blood.
