Current Blood Supply
Donating blood makes me feel good knowing that I have saved lives with a priceless commodity, it gives me great satisfaction. I donate blood to give back to my community.
Highest Donor in Kenya. Has donated 81 times since 1983
Blood donation is the biggest gift one can give to humanity. People should give freely because it is given freely to them by God.
I would like to thank blood donors whose gift of life have given me an opportunity to be alive today. I also commend the Kenya National Blood Transfusion Service for making the supply available to me and others in need.
