The Regional Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Rev. Anthony Cudjoe, has pledged the church’s commitment to scale up collective voluntary blood donation to save patients with life-threatening conditions.
According to Rev. Cudjoe, the donation is in accordance with ICGC's agenda to minimise blood shortage, influence society, and help tackle head-on, emergency situations.
The blood donation is part of activities to mark the 35th-anniversary celebration of ICGC in Accra.
In an interview with Class News’ Jerry Akornor, Rev. Cudjoe said the church is committed to lending its support to the National Blood Service – Ghana.
According to him, ICGC has already presented 3,500 pints of blood and some Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) equipment to the National Blood Service-Ghana, the Accra Psychiatric Hospital, Pantang Mental Hospital and Ankaful Hospital in the Central Region.
The National Blood Service-Ghana led by the Head of Haemovigilance, Dr Michael Acquah, presented a citation to ICGC for its consistent annual contributions to the health sector.
