A deputy Minister of Health and Members of Parliament (MP) for Weija-Gbawe, Mrs. Tina Gifty Naa Ayeley Mensah on Saturday exhibited leadership by example when she joined hundreds of people in her constituency to donate blood to add up to the countrys blood bank.

The blood donation exercise which took place at the St. Jude Catholic Church in New-Weija and organized by Knight of Marshall, an appendage society of the Catholic Church of Ghana was highly patronized by inhabitants of New-Weija and its environs.

In her keynote address as guest speaker for the very important event, Mrs Tina Mensah appealed to residents to develop the habit of donating blood frequently to help save more precious lives, adding that that was the most sacrificial and worthy service to mankind.

She noted that bloods that are donated to the blood bank always become life saver to patients who frequently suffer from anemia or undergo an operation or are accident victims. To confirm her point Hon. Tina Naa Ayeley Mensah, took the centre stage of the blood donation process to donate blood in the full glare of all who participated.

The MP, who has proven beyond reasonable doubts as mother for all manner of persons in the area also called on them to eschew partisan politics and rather work together to achieve a common goal. Other functionaries of the New Patriotic Party in the constituency also joined the long queue to donate their quota to the nation’s blood bank.
