blood1[www.inewsguyana.com] – Several Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) staff braved the needle to give 28 units of blood to help the National Blood Transfusion Service (NBTS) replenish its blood bank supply.

Coordinator of the initiative was Dacia Samaroo, CJIA’s Commercial Officer, Commercial and Administration Division (CAM).

“We (CJIA) realized that blood is very much in demand. One pint of blood has the capacity to save three lives, so we encouraged all staff to volunteer,” Ms. Samaroo said.blood2

This is the first time CJIA has undertaken such a project, and Ms. Samaroo is optimistic that it will be an annual event. One of CJIA’s mandates is to give back to the community.

Members of the public, Immigration and Floor Care staff also donated blood.
