Rotary Small-Group Blood Donation Days

By PP German Hui, Rotary Club of Lan Kwai Fong

In September 2023, Hong Kong suffered into damage by the Super Typhoon Saola and torrential rainfall with black rainstorm signal lasted for 16 hours. In general, under those extreme weather, the blood storage will be shortage due to the blood donor centers not being able to operate.

Rotarians responded to this social need promptly. 43 Rotarians and friends from 8 Rotary clubs donated blood at the donor centres in Causeway Bay, Wanchai and Mongkok respectively in September. 31 of the donors donated blood successfully. In this Rotary Year, 73 Rotarians, Rotaractors and friends registered in our events and 52 of them donated blood successfully.

We would like to express our gratitude to the following clubs in hosting group blood donations in September 2023.

  1. Rotary Club of Star Avenue
  2. Rotary Club of The Peak
  3. Rotary Club of Peninsula East
  4. Rotary Club of Hong Kong Bayview
  5. Rotary Club of Bayview Sunshine Hong Kong
  6. Rotary Club of Hong Kong Harbour
  7. Rotary Club of Golden Bauhinia Hong Kong
  8. Rotary Club of Peninsula Sunrise

Our District Health Service Committee invites the Rotary clubs in Hong Kong to be our Ambassadors of Blood Donation and host Group Blood Donation Event. We aim to make a deeper impact on blood donation in our community and raise awareness among the Rotarians, Rotaractors, and the citizens. We also would be able to help the Hong Kong Red Cross Blood Transfusion Service to stabilize the blood storage.
