The Scarcity of Blood Becomes Worrying in Togo – CNTS Reveals

In keeping with the twin traditions of African solidarity and American volunteering, the Global Alumni Association of Togo (GAAT) invites the Togolese people to donate blood to save lives.

The appointment was made on  Saturday, September 29 from 7:30 to 12:00  at the National Blood Transfusion Center (CNTS) of Lomé.

The transaction continues until October 31, 2018 during business hours at the CNTS collection points below. A private interview and a medical examination will precede the donation of blood to ensure that donors do so without danger to their state of health. A light snack will be provided after the blood donation.

Haemorrhages are the leading cause of death for pregnant women in Togo and it is unacceptable that women die giving birth. Malaria is the first public health problem in Togo and anemia is the leading cause of death in children with malaria and sickle cell disease. Road accidents are the leading cause of death among young people and adolescents, and the casualties, hemorrhaging plays a sinister role. These deaths are preventable and we must help prevent them.

In emergency, blood transfusion is the only way to keep these children, pregnant or in diapers and adolescents alive, to continue the care required. Unfortunately, the amount of blood available in Togo remains insufficient:  1 in 4 people can not find the blood bag prescribed at the blood center . And this shortage worsens during the holidays because the schools are the first blood collection site for transfusion centers.
