Imagine if all taxi drivers in Macuata donate blood to Labasa Hospital Blood Bank, there won’t be any shortage of blood, says Raiderz Club president Mosheen Khan.

Yesterday 15 members of this club sacrificed their business hours to donate blood at the hospital.

Mr Khan said this was the first time they had done this since the club had been in existence from last year.

“We want to set an example to all taxi drivers starting from Macuata that we need to step out from our comfort zone and donate blood to save lives,” Mr Khan said.

“It does not cost any money and neither has it carried negative effect.

“While driving in town sometimes I meet people searching for blood donors or there is a text message from hospital saying they in need of blood.

“So I thought if all taxi drivers lend a helping hand, then imagine how many lives will be saved.”

He said every faith based group taught members to do good and save lives.

“So I believe with this first attempt taken up by our members surely more blood donors will step forward to help,” Mr Khan said.
