IGNORANCE: a roadblock to the attainment of 100%VNRD status in Nigeria

It has been popularly said that the problem of Africa is Ignorance and
apathy. As a proud African, there is a tendency to feel slighted by
such statements but a critical review of several sectors in our
society will reveal that such a statement is an axiom. Ignorance, not
illiteracy, is our problem. Probably because Africa evolved from an
Oralous society where communication is effected through drums and
knowledge is passed through songs, tales and folklores, there is that
tendency in the African not to quest for knowledge but to wait for it
to come to you.

Concerned at the spate of non-involvement of the youth in Voluntary
blood donation in Nigeria, BLOOD DRIVE INITIATIVE embarked on a study
among students of higher institutions of learning in the south-western
region of Nigeria. 74% or our respondents said they do not donate
blood because they are not aware there is a need, or they've not been
asked. 11% complained about the attitude of the personnel and time
required for the exercise. 6% complained about proximity to a donation
centre, 9% wanted remuneration for such an effort. 74% is a large
number in itself but considering that this study was conducted among
students in tertiary institutions makes it more mind boggling. If
Nigeria is going to attain 100VNRD status, we must remove ignorance
from the cog of the wheel of the blood transfusion service.

BDI welcomes all to 2011

Friends,
Compliments of the season to you all. Thanks for your numerous support
to our drive for life in the year 2010. I want to inform you all that
we were able to do the much we can by the grace of God and by your
support. As we remain committed to our drive for life in order tom see
that Nigerian in no time joins the committee of nation with
availability of safe blood via attainment of 100% Voluntary
Non-Remunerative Blood Donation (VNRBD), we want to solicit your
invaluable support and contributions so we can have the challenges
facing the blood transfusion services of our health sector addressed.
Once again, while thanking you ahead for positioning yourself to join
in this drive for life, I want to specially wish you all a graceful
and fulfilling NEW YEAR!
Thanks for being as committed as we are to giving someone a chance at
life via availability of safe blood.
