Blood Drive, “A gift to save a life” and a Mini Health Fair

Wednesday, April 6, 2016

he Health Office is organizing a Health Fair and Blood Drive Saturday 16 April from 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM in the lower commons. This event will take place during the PTA spring carnival.

The Ethiopian National Blood Bank Services will be present with their professional team to collect blood. We are honored to host this event with them because our city, Addis Ababa, is in great need of blood donors as there aren’t enough donors or blood to give to hospitals. So, please donate to contribute to a great cause and help save lives. Donors will be screened before the blood donation and after donating drinks will be provided to them.

Also, we are glad to announce that a mini-health fair will be featured next to the Blood drive and all attendees can learn about health-related information and services. We will have various representatives from different clinics and hospitals in town as well as pharmacies showing over the counter and prescription medication items.

During the health fair the nurses from the Health Office will be able to do some screening if needed such as, blood pressure, body mass index and sugar levels, as well as give nursing advice upon request. If you have any questions or need more information, please come and see us at the Health Office. We hope you can join us in the effort to help the community and give a gift to save a life. 

Thank you,

The Health Office Crew
