Blood Donor Recruitment to launch Club 25

Solomon Islands Red Cross Blood Donor Recruitment at the National Referal Hospital will launch a club for donors who interest to be members. According to Ms Deanne, Blood Donor Recruitment officer the club will be named Club 25.

"We call the new initiative Club 25 because of the three main objectives of this Blood Donor Recruitment program. Firstly, it will be encouraged for donor to give blood 25 times in his or her life time. It's better for potential donors to decide earlier or at age 25 to give blood. And finally, we will encourage Club 25 members to get in other 25 friends or relatives to be members of this club and becoming blood donors too", she said.

Ms Deanne said Club 25 will target the youths and schools especially, to be its members. But interested members of public are invited to join by filling in the Club 25 application form which will be available at the Blood Bank office after its launch this month.

November 24, 2008 the Solomon Islands Red Cross and the Ministry of Health will lauch the Club 25 at the Cultural Village with the Solomon Islands Governor General, Sir Nathenial Waena as a guest of honor.
