Kumasi, June 28, GNA –
Pastor Ransford Obeng, the General Overseer of Charismatic Christian
Centre (CCC) has appealed to the general public, especially the youth
to cultivate the habit of donating blood to save the lives of
patients in dire need of blood to survive.

He observed that many
patients were losing their lives because blood banks at the
various hospitals were running short of blood and citizens were reluctant
in donating blood to save lives.

Pastor Obeng made the
appeal after a blood donation programme organised by the Church as part of
activities to commemorate his 61st birthday on Sunday in
Kumasi.

He noted that lack of
empathy to share each other’s suffering in the society had been one of the main
hindrances preventing the general public from donating blood.

Pastor Obeng said
there was no age barrier in donating blood if only donors met the health
requirements to do so and therefore, entreated all Ghanaians to get involved in
the sacrificial and charitable act of donating blood to save the
lives of many patients.

He cited that in
Europe people readily donated even one of their kidneys to save the lives of
others whilst “Ghanaians still don’t see and understand the need to
donate blood to save lives”. 

Pastor
Obeng stated that donation of blood neither took the lives of
donors nor caused any complications in their lives and advised them to
love and care for others in the spirit of giving and sharing their wealth and
possessions with those in need of assistance for socio-economic survival.
