Every day, around 1,000 blood donors are needed by Uganda Blood Transfusion Services (UBTS) to satisfy the demands of hospitals and patients. On 15th September 2023, MU-JHU Care Ltd  collaborated with UBTS to mobilise the Mulago Hill community to give blood and save lives.

This action is consistent with our organization’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy goal, which prioritizes activities in healthcare, sanitation, education, environmental sustainability, and maternity health. Regular blood donation assists people in need, and it is a simple yet powerful way to give back to society.

With the support of colleagues from MU-JHU staff, IDI, Super Taste Restaurant, MAKSPH, Mulago National Referral Hospital and MJAP, the UBTS team team was able to collect 65 units of blood.

We appreciate all who participated in this  MU-JHU Care Ltd Blood Donation Activity,  will be an annual Corporate Social Responsibility Event.

Thank you our staff and neighbors on Mulago Hill for your contribution to save lives in health facilities all over Uganda.
