Youth Blood Drive Papua New Guinea

Youth Blood Drive Papua New Guinea

PMGH and the Sir Brian Bell Foundation (SBBF) have joined forces to launch a new Blood Donation and Health Awareness Campaign: Youth Blood Drive. The SBBF has donated PGK2 million over 2 years to PMGH to drive this program. The program is aimed at getting the youth of PNG, those aged 16-25 to engage is social responsibility and become life time blood donors supporting their communities. Those involved will also receive a mini physical examination each time they donate which will give them an insight in their general health as well as a health education program which will teach students ways to stay healthy and protect themselves from sexually transmitted diseases. Contact us today to get involved.

Mission: Blood donation and Health Education in Papua New Guinea for the Youth of PNG.

Thank you Jubilee Catholic Secondary School

Thank you Jubilee Catholic Secondary School for donating huge 60
bags of blood last week. On behalf of the Port Moresby General Hospital and the Youth Blood Drive team would like to say thank you for getting involved. You are all hero's. These blood donations will save many lives at the Port Moresby General Hospital.

Seventeen-year-old Solomon Vaki in Grade 12 said he was happy to donate his blood for the first time. “One of my goals in life is to help someone and giving my blood will help save a life”.

Sixteen-year-old Natania Minha Kook in Grade 10 was also excited to donate her blood for the first time. “Donating blood is a great thing to do to help people in need especially mothers to gain strength after losing blood when in labour. I love the Youth Blood Drive program because the team goes to schools and asks the students to volunteer, I am sure it is effective and helps a lot of people”, Natania said.

School principal Benedetti Ove said the school was happy to accept the blood team from Port Moresby General Hospital as part
of educating young people to become community conscious. “One of the guiding principles of the school is to be of service to other people, and we have pointed out that donating blood is a very easy task that anyone can do, in fact, it is a practical way of showing Christian love. Christian love is shown in action when a student comes and donates blood for somebody that he or she doesn’t even know, donating blood shows that love. As a Christian school, we want to demonstrate that” Mrs. Ove said.

~ Thank You Bomana Police Training College ~

On behalf of the Port Moresby General Hospital and the Youth Blood Drive Team we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who rolled up their sleeves to donate blood last Friday at Bomana Police Training College.

The Port Moresby General Hospital Youth Blood Team managed to collect a total of 91 bags of life-saving blood on Friday. Some of the trainees said, they were motivated to donate blood because they believe that one day they might need a blood transfusion when their families or relatives are not around to donate, this blood collection could save their lives while others said knowing their blood could save the lives of mothers, babies or those in accidents is an amazing feeling and would be willing to keep donating blood in future.

Thank you once again students of Bomana Police Training College for dedicating your time to saving those in need.

On behalf of the Port Moresby General Hospital and the Youth Blood Drive, director, Anna Megueria congratulated the school and students for cooperating with the team, in collecting a huge number of blood bags.

“We’ve been saving a lot of people with the blood you have donated. Your school is very inspiring, and I think you should be proud of being part of the school. “When we walk around the blood drives and not just Youth Blood Drive but corporate blood drive, I see adults from Don Bosco everywhere, they are the first ones to get on the bed and donate blood; they are the first ones to know how important it is to donate blood. “And I am hoping that you will take the same amazing spirit that this school is giving you, and take it for the rest of your lives."

“The reason we have come here is not just to say how amazing you are. You are amazing, and you should know that you are one of the most beautiful schools I ever been to, you are well organized, you look presentable, you are very polite and you beautiful. “We also come here to say thank you with a little surprise of five cakes for you. I wish you all good luck in your exams,” Ms. Megueria told the students.

On behalf of the school, Fr. Ambrose Pereira thanked the blood team for visiting the school and encouraging the students to donate blood. “It was a fantastic job; and we enjoyed the visits to the school to educate the students on the importance of giving blood. Thank you blood bank team once more, and special thank you to those students who have donated blood, you are heroes,” Fr. Ambrose said.

Sir Brian Bell Foundation CEO Bronwyn Wright is thrilled with the success of the Youth Blood Drive 2016 that launched on the 14th June this year.

~ BASKETBALL PARTNERS WITH BLOOD DRIVE TO HELP SAVE LIVES ~

The Basketball Federation of Papua New Guinea (BFPNG) have teamed up with the Port Moresby General Hospitals’ Sir Brian Bell Foundation (SBBF) Youth Blood Drive, creating the opportunity for people to donate blood at tonight’s Twilight Basketball session being held at the Taurama Aquatic & Indoor Centre.

Along with the usual on-court basketball action, the Blood Drive team will be setting up four beds, collecting blood from 5pm to 9pm. BFPNG and the Youth Blood Drive are hoping to have 100 volunteers donate blood throughout tonight’s event.

BFPNG Chief Executive Officer Joel Khalu said that Twilight Basketball provided the perfect platform to help promote the Youth Blood Drive initiative.

“We've had more than 300 people attend each Twilight Basketball session over the last month and that’s a great crowd for us to promote healthy lifestyle messages to,” Mr. Khalu said.

“The Blood Drive event is about more than just giving blood. It is about bringing awareness regarding the importance of maintaining healthy life habits.”

“That message aligns perfectly with what we already endorse through our Hoops for Health program, so it makes sense for us to partner with Port Moresby General Hospital and the SBBF Youth Blood Drive initiative.”

Anybody interested in donating blood will be required to undergo a screening process beforehand. All volunteers who successfully donate blood will receive a free BFPNG T-Shirt or pair of shorts.

For more information please contact BFPNG Executive Officer Joel Khalu on [email protected].

~ Don Bosco Technical Secondary School donates an incredible 167 life-saving bags of blood ~

The Port Moresby General Hospital and the Youth Blood Drive team would like to say a huge congratulations to Don Bosco Technical Secondary School, for getting involved in the Youth Blood Drive once again.

The school was happy and committed to three days of donating blood this week. Deputy for student affairs and discipline, Mr. George Isoaimo thanked the blood team for visiting the school and creating this opportunity for students.

For the last 15 years the school has been committed to donating blood and saving lives and is the leading school taking part in blood donation in the NCD. "The idea that we try to implement in the minds of students, is to give to help others and one way of showing this service to people around the community is to give blood," Mr. Isoaimo said.

Jacob a student began donating blood in 2009 when he was in high school. “I saw the importance of blood donation when my dad was involved in a car accident, after loosing a lot of blood my relatives and I donated and saved his life”.

Ancillary staff of the school, Catherine Yawing was delighted to donate blood and is following the footsteps of her father who is a regular blood donor. Catherine hopes her blood will help mothers and babies who are short of blood at the hospital.
