A group of 12 friends who make up a non-government organisation called Slayers, donated blood over the weekend at Labasa Hospital. The blood bank was running short on supply so when this group was asked to help, they did not hesitate.

The drive was carried out on Sunday at the Labasa Hospital blood bank de­partment. Speaking to Fiji Sun, Slayers secretary Shalveen Lal said that it was the fourth time the group has donated blood to the hospital.

“We all have different blood groups and since I work in the hospital I re­ceived the call that the blood bank was running low and I inform my mem­bers,” Mr Lal said.

“Otherwise we donate blood every four months. Our group was formed in February 2018 as we saw the need to help people.”

“So far we have helped a disabled fam­ily in Nagigi, Labasa by donating food items. Our next project is to build a kitchen complete with electrical wir­ing for the same family.

“Helping someone is free and we have only one life to enjoy, therefore helping the needy or the poor is our aim.”

Mr Lal is an air condition technician at the Labasa Hospital.
