SLNS Parakrama Hosts Blood Donation Campaign

A blood donation campaign organized by the Western Naval Command Medical Organization was held at the SLNS Parakrama auditorium on 23rd December 2011. A large number of naval personnel attached to the Western Naval Command participated with great enthusiasm. Officials of the National Blood Transfusion Service rendered their assistance in collaboration with the medical personnel of the Western Naval Command Hospital.

The Navy spearheads many blood donation campaigns at its bases located island-wide contributing to the national requirements of maintaining sufficient blood stocks for medical treatment. Naval personnel, who are conscious of the well-beings of their fellow citizens at all times, voluntarily donate their blood with a view to save precious lives through their meritorious act.
