A scene from the event

ONCE AGAIN, Pink FM, one of Ghana?s popular radio stations based at Kasoa, has organized a blood donation exercise for the blood bank at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.

The exercise under the theme ?Save Life, Not War,? took place at the forecourt of the radio station. The event attracted a large number of Pink FM listeners and people from all walks of life who formed part of the station?s corporate social responsibility.

Addressing newsmen at the event, the Deputy Managing Director of the station, Mr. Rockson Asamoah, said the blood donation exercise was the third in a series to save the lives of patients and also use that platform to plead to Ghanaians to maintain the peace and stability we are enjoying as the 2012 general elections approached.

According to him, the initiative was put together by the crew of ?Apomuden Asetena,? a health programme aired on the station by Miss. Josephine Addai.

Mr. Asamoah said the exercise was also in response to an appeal by the blood bank to address the acute shortage of blood at the hospital.   About 250,000 pints of blood was needed in the various hospitals in the country.

The Programmes Director of the station, David Simpson said those who donated blood were contributing towards the preservation of lives.

Donors were given assorted items and certificates.
