ACTNews, TANGERANG REGENCY – The Head of Indonesian Red Cross (PMI), Jusuf Kalla, revealed that the current blood supply continues to decline amid the increasing requests for blood transfusions. According to Jusuf Kalla, PMI must prepare at least five million bags of blood every year.

Responding to the situation, Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) Tangerang Regency carried out a blood donation event on Saturday (9/25/2021) at the auditorium of At Taqwa Citra Pasundan Mosque, Curug District, Tangerang Regency, Banten to support PMI's target in fulfilling their blood supply.

Insha Allah, that would be our effort as well as blessings for people who require transfusion,” said Muhammad Ridwan Marsudi from ACT Tangerang Regency Program team.

In carrying out the event, ACT Tangerang Regency was accompanied by ACT’s Humanity Medical Services. Head of Humanity Medical Services, Dr. Arini Retno Palupi, explained that the activity was an effort to maximize health services to the people who hardly afford blood transfusion.

Alhamdulillah, a medical team and an ambulance unit were deployed to the location to support the activity. Insha Allah, this will be our effort to save the nation from the pandemic by supporting PMI’s target in maximizing the blood supply which continues to decline,” added Dr. Arini.[]
