Dedicated service and quest to save live


Dedicated service and quest to save live

Marian Academy (Georgetown, Guyana), which helps and continues to organise blood donation events and donated blood during the Covid-19 pandemic, was honoured. 

On June 14, World Blood Donor Day was celebrated in recognition of the role of voluntary blood donor organisations and donors.  Guyana celebrated this day under the theme, “Donating blood is an act of solidarity. Join the effort and save lives.”  

The Ministry of Health’s National Blood Transfusion Services held a ceremony to honour individuals and organisations who helped and continued to organise blood drives and who donated blood during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Dr Pedro Lewis, director of the National Blood Transfusion Services, commended all donors and organisations who stayed committed to the cause of saving lives during the pandemic.  Sister Marie Harper, O.S.U. received an award on behalf of Marian Academy (Georgetown, Guyana) for our dedicated service and quest to save lives even during the pandemic when schools were closed.  Students, parents, teachers and friends are always generous and committed to the school’s annual Valentine Blood Drive.
