Give Blood – Give Life!

Today, the Peace Corps volunteers in Saint Lucia will be conducting a blood drive from 10 this morning until 5 pm. Saint Lucia’s blood bank has suffered from a chronic lack of blood units for years now, and is constantly short of the most needed blood types. St. Lucians have typically been reticent to give blood, and many are unaware of the health benefits of regular blood donation.

Island Scene 758 urges all Saint Lucians to be brave, get that finger stick, then lie down for a soothing few minutes as the blood bag fills. Then give yourself a pat on the back for helping save a life!
