Blood donation camps will be arranged in all districts of Sindh for three days starting on June 21 on occasion of Benazir Bhutto’s 57th birth anniversary.
This was stated on Sunday by Dr Kareem Khawaja, president of People’s Doctors Forum, while talking to The News.
A portion of the total collection of blood would be dispatched for soldiers fighting against terrorism while the other beneficiaries of this campaign would be the patients of thalassemia and the general public, he said.
Dr Khawaja said that his forum had collected 10,500 blood bags last year out of which 5,400 bags were given to the soldiers involved in eliminating extremism and terrorism from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and tribal areas.
Meanwhile, a handout issued from the CM House said that executive district officers (health) would arrange blood camps for three days in their respective districts. Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah has announced a reward for maximum collection of blood bags in the districts.
