The USIU-Africa Red Cross club collected a record 141 pints of blood during a blood donation drive on the lawn behind the cafeteria from 8-9 November. The two day drive - which mobilized 143 donors – was organized in collaboration with the Blood Link Foundation and the Kenya National Blood Transfusion Service.
Given the drive’s success, the club plans to make the drive a bi-annual event, and thereby encourage a culture of blood donation on campus. Indeed, Kenya has one of the world’s worst road safety records – a fact that directly contributes to the high demand for blood transfusion in medical facilities across the country.
