National Blood Service of Zimbabwe (NBSZ) has called for more blood donation to the blood reserves ahead of the festive season as accidents which always escalate the blood demand are always rampant during this period.

Through a notice, the NBSZ spokesperson Esther Massundah invited citizens to the launch of the 2016 Festive Season Campaign to be held on Wednesday 30 November 2016, at the NBSZ Head Office, 53 Mazoe Street; 1000hrs – 1200hrs.

"As part of the campaign launch, a blood drive will be held and we are extending an open invitation to your media house to come through on the day to donate. A similar activity will also take place at all branches on the same day," she said.

"The campaign theme is "Blood Connects Us All" and the Youth Donor Month theme is "Give a pulse of life, donate blood". We look forward to your coverage of this event and the whole campaign."
