Police officers take part in blood donation drive
To commemorate the Seychelles Police Day celebrated on September 21 each year, some 30 officers from the Seychelles Police yesterday participated in a blood donation drive at the Seychelles Hospital.
Corporal Mira Marimba, who joined the police force 15 years ago, said that was not her first donation. “I am used to giving blood as I saw a need from the hospital but unfortunately there are many youths who cannot give blood as they are into drugs. I see this as a charitable gesture and as a youth and a member of the police force I find it very important. There are many people who might need blood and it can be anyone of us. Instead of being victim of bad influences, let us do it as our duty to help our own. Maler pa averti and anyone can need blood at any given time. We have to keep feeding the blood bank in order to help the community.”
