BLOOD DONATION – Galaxy International School Uganda


Blood is one of the most crucial items in hospitals yet very scarce. We often think that donating blood is most important during natu-ral disasters or in circumstances where people are injured : on the contrary, hospitals everywhere always need donated blood.
At the moment,mothers and children are in dire need of blood and our willingness to donate can ably save them. We would like to create awareness and also participate in the life saving exercise as GISU.
Blood donation is coupled with a number of benefits which include;

  • In cases where one has high levels of iron in the body, donation helps to lower the iron levels in the blood, by reducing the amount of red blood cells .
  • Lowers cholesterol levels.
  • Helps you find out your blood group.
  • Emotional / psychological benefits as donors can derive satisfaction from knowing they helped someone else even if it’s a stranger.
  • The bloodbank team will be at the school premises for this exercise the whole day on the 20th of January 2023.
