By Benjamin Jumbe

This comes at a time the country is grappling with a blood shortage with some service paralysed at many health facilities.

The Red Cross Secretary General Robert Kwesiga tells KFM that this is part of activities to mark the Red Cross week.

He says the new strategy also seeks to ensure that all members of the organisation also take part in the donation so as to bridge the gap of 110,000 units
