Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has joined Kabaka Foundation in partnership with Uganda Red Cross Society and Uganda Blood Transfusion Service to donate blood at Nakasero Market.
This is part of the Kabaka’s blood donation drive in all the counties of Buganda. Blood donation had sharply declined in the wake of Covid-19.
The Lord Mayor made a clarion call to all leaders to embrace this drive because the schools which were the majority donors are apparently closed.
He said this will help to address blood targets because blood shortage creates disasters in an attempt to address life-threatening emergencies.
He thanked all the stakeholders for this laudable initiative before folding his sleeves to donate blood.
