Mbale Regional blood bank has received a new advanced blood storage refrigerator.
The facility was donated by telecom company MTN Uganda to improve blood storage capacity which has been a challenge at the regional blood bank especially during peak blood collection periods.
Mbale regional blood bank collects over 3,000 units of blood every month, against a storage capacity of 1,800 units.
The multi-million refrigeration facility was delivered to the facility by the company’s regional business manager, Mr. Isaiah Semamuli.
