Naval personnel donate blood in Jaffna

[May 01 2018]

large number of Sri Lanka Navy personnel serving in the Northern Naval Command donated blood during a blood donation campaign held during the weekend (28th Saturday). The programme, held in parallel to the Vesak festival was conducted in response to a request made by the consultant transfusion physician of the Northern Province Regional Blood Bank.

Naval personnel serving in establishments, ships and craft belonging to the Northern Naval Command voluntarily donated blood to replenish stocks at the blood bank. The programme was conducted in cooperation with the Jaffna Teaching Hospital.

A similar blood donation campaign was held earlier this month (07) by the Northern Naval Command for the benefit of the patients in the region. In addition field medical clinics are also conducted in the region, especially in the islets by the Navy. Medicine and nutritional supplements are provided free of charge for the patients attending these clinics.
