USP Lautoka Campus Continues to Serve the Community through Blood Drive Campaigns

The University of the South Pacific (USP) Lautoka Campus held yet another blood drive on Saturday, 24th June and plans to continue with this worthy course says Campus Director Dr. Pramila Devi.

Dr. Devi said the Blood drive is USP’s Community Engagement and Outreach initiative and the USP Lautoka has received national recognition and acknowledgement for its outstanding efforts.

Held at the USP Lautoka Campus, the blood drive was the first one for 2017 and two more are planned for this year.

Although close to 50 people turned up to donate only 40 were eligible donors, of which 18 were first timers and 6 were students of USP Lautoka.

USP Lautoka Blood Drive Committee Chairman Upendra Kumar said he was pleased with the turnout especially considering the last blood drive in the Lautoka City was held just 3 weeks earlier.

“We want to thank all donors and everyone who assisted in this blood drive and we hope to receive your continued support in future,” said Mr. Kumar.

“Please join us in this worthy cause and help save more lives.”

USP Lautoka received its first award in 2011 for collecting the highest pints of blood through its blood drive campaigns in the Tertiary Institution category for The Western Division.  

The Campus was honored for its commitment towards the course during the World Donor Day celebrations in Seaqaqa in year 2012 where it received its second award for highest number of blood collected for the Western Division Category.  It was declared winner in the same category in 2013 and 2014. 

In 2015 USP Lautoka was declared National winner for collecting 2nd highest number of blood in the tertiary school category.  

The Campus received its second National award for 3rd highest blood recruitment in the tertiary school category for the year 2016. The award was presented during the World Donor Day Celebrations in Tavua on Saturday, 17th June this year.
