Ghana's trusted insurance brand; Donewell Insurance LTD has partnered with Happy 98.9FM to organise the 2022 edition of the station's annual blood donation exercise. The over a decade-old annual blood donation exercise was suspended in 2020 and 2021 due to Covid-19 and its associated restrictions. However, with the ease of restrictions and reduction in reported cases, the two brands decided to revive the life-saving initiative this year.
The National Blood Service has always complained about its inability to reach the set target for Voluntary Unpaid Blood Donation across the country year in, year out. It is against this background that Happy FM initiated the blood donation exercise for over a decade with the National Blood Service and the 37 Military Hospital Blood Bank. Donewell Insurance has been the current partner of the annual blood donation exercise with this year's event being the 3rd edition of this great partnership.The exercise dubbed, "Donate a pint of blood and save a life" saw many people troop to the Ayalolo Bus Terminal in Accra to support what they describe as a worthy cause. Speaking at the event, the Programmes Manager of Happy 98.9 FM, Elwoode Mantey, said an event is a charitable event Happy FM is embarking on as part of its corporate social responsibility to give back to society. He added that the exercise is also to raise awareness and increase the number of voluntary donations in the country. "We do this annually to sensitize people on the need to donate blood to save lives and replenish the National Blood Bank and the 37 Military Military Hospital as often as they can manage. We are encouraging voluntary donation as against what has become a standard of replacement donation." Elwoode Mantey stated.Speaking about the motivation behind partnering with the initiative, Acting Head of Marketing and Business Development at Donewell Insurance; Cecilia Bruce said: " This is the third time we are partnering with this life-saving event and the objective has always been to save lives and impact the community within which we conduct our business. At Donewell Insurance, we believe that life is priceless and therefore we invest in notable and worthy events such as this blood donation exercise to bring hope to people and save lives".
