Director of the National Laboratory Services, Dr. Michelle Hamilton, is calling on young people to voluntarily give blood and to also encourage their peers to donate.

Dr. Hamilton was addressing the World Blood Donor Day Donor Awards held at the National Blood Transfusion Service in Kingston yesterday

Among those recognised was Prime Minister’s Youth Awardee and Founder and Manager, I Have a Heart Foundation, Abi-Gaye Smythe, who has hosted seven blood drives.

A cardiac patient, Ms. Smythe is unable to donate, but needs blood each time she has to do an operation.
