Musician Rema Namakula and her husband Doctor Hamza Ssebunya have already started doing their work as Brand Ambassadors for Rotary Club with an aim of collecting UGx 370 plus Million, $ 100,000.

The "Drop of Blood Initiative Blood Bank Mengo project" was kick started off a few weeks ago by Rotary Uganda as they are looking to raise US$100,000 towards the equipping of the Rotary Blood Bank at Mengo Hospital.

Through the Annual Transformational Leadership Forum and concert, which will take place next week on Friday 28th February 2020, the Uganda Rotary Blood Bank Programme is seeking to collect funds to purchase ultra-modern blood-processing equipment.

The equipment to be purchased, at a total cost of US$100,000, will complete the blood processing cycle. It includes the Automatic Blood Grouping Machine, which determines the donated blood groups; and the Floor Standing Centrifridge 6000i for component preparation, which separates blood into different components like platelets, plasma and packed red cells among others.

The Uganda Rotary Blood Bank Programme has over the past three years held concerts to raise funds towards building a first class fully-fledged facility that can test, process and pack safe blood. Through these initiatives and local fundraising drives among local Rotary clubs and the community, US$856,000 was raised for construction of the building.
