HEALTH IS WEALTH: 100 Students Of LASPOTECH Donate Blood!!!!

AT least 100 students of Lagos State Polytechnic have participated in the just concluded voluntary blood donation exercise which took placein the Ikorodu main campus recently.
During the exercise organised in conjunction with the Lagos State Blood Transfusion committee, Nigerians were urged to donate blood voluntarily without expecting financial reward.
A member of the committee, Mr. Solomon Eka, described blood donation as an important exercise in saving lives adding, ” Nigerians should show concern when privileged to do so.”
Eka who enumerated some criteria for blood donation said, ”it is not about the donor’s size but their state of health. Before donating blood, the donor must weigh at least 50kg and the blood pressure and blood level must be normal. Also, anybody who is less than 18 or above 65 years cannot participate in the exercise. Nursing mothers and those just recovering from illness cannot donate.” he said.
At the event, blood identity cards were issued to donors to also granttheir familymembers access to blood when they are in need of it. Mrs Sherifat Lawal, also a member of the Lagos State Blood Transfusion committee advised the students to protect themselves from HIV, hepatitis and other transmittable diseases.
