The Red Cross Club in partnership with Red Cross Kenya holds blood drive

By Kemigisha Agnes

The Red Cross Club at USIU-Africa successfully organized a blood drive in collaboration with the Red Cross Kenya on November 15 and 16. The primary objective was to collect 100 units of blood, and the drive managed to collect a total of 101 units. This remarkable outcome highlights the efficacy of the blood drive and underscores the community's commitment to contributing to a noble cause. The club extends heartfelt appreciation to everyone who participated, including those who generously donated blood despite not being members of the club. The overwhelming response from the University community demonstrates the collective spirit and dedication to supporting crucial initiatives that benefit society at large.

In addition to the successful blood drive, the Red Cross club is actively contributing to the well-being of the community by providing first aid services during weekend games. Serving as first aiders reflects the commitment to not only respond to immediate health needs but also to actively engage in community service beyond our primary focus. The dual success of both the blood drive and our volunteering efforts as first aiders reaffirms the club's mission to make a positive impact on the well-being of the community and beyond.
