The National Blood Service has awarded 11 individuals and 16 organizations for their immense contributions towards the success of the Service.
The awards coincided with the 15th National Blood Donor Day Celebration and launching of the Annual Voluntary Blood Donation Campaign on Monday in Accra.
Speaking at the event, Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur urged Ghanaians to see voluntary blood donation as a civic responsibility.
According to him, this will encourage more Ghanaians to get involved blood donation exercises as a way of addressing shortages at the various blood banks in the country.
