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.
