A blood donor in South Sudan.
The Medical Director of Aweil Civil Hospital has once again called on the public to donate blood to save lives in the state health facility.
The hospital has run out of blood supply to meet normal operating demands, especially for women in labor, children with anaemia, and patients undergoing surgeries.
Dr. Wol Wol Akeen, the Medical Director said the facility admits more than 10 children with serious anaemia – at least every day.
He disclosed that two pregnant women who have been admitted due to server malaria and anaemia are in urgent need of blood transfusion.
“We have two women brought from the villages but they need blood transfusion but no one has donated blood. I am urging the general public to donate bloods to save lives because we don’t have blood in the blood bank,” Dr. Wol appealed.
