Assin Foso Area Lauded For Annual Blood Donation Exercise

A delegation from the Foso St. Francis Xavier Hospital has commended The Church of Pentecost in Assin Foso Area for its annual blood donation to the hospital, which has helped raise the hospital’s status to a Level 2 referral center.

The delegation of health experts, led by Mr. Manfred Ansah Nyametease, a Senior Biomedical Scientist, commended the Church on behalf of the Hospital when they visited the 2024 Easter Convention on Saturday, March 30, 2024, at the Foso Jomsco School Park to sensitise the church populace about the need to donate blood to fill the blood bank of the hospital.

Educating the Church on the importance of Blood donation, Matthew Ninwienaane, a Lab Scientist at the hospital, said that blood donation saves lives and thus is a good cause.

He asserted that blood donors, aside from helping save the lives of others, also enjoy significant personal benefits too, which include enjoying free health screening and helping to balance the quantity of iron in one’s blood, which often leads to various heart-related conditions, among others.

In recognition of the great work the church is doing in donating blood to the hospital, the hospital has, as a matter of policy, announced that all Church of Pentecost members who need blood transfusion will receive it freely, whether they are donors or not, henceforth.

The Area Head, Apostle Frederick K. Andoh, on behalf of the church, thanked the hospital for the commendation and promised to continue to partner with the hospital to save lives through regular blood donation exercises.

The health talk was followed by a blood donation exercise.
