With 148 people dead and over 70 being wounded by the attack by four gunmen at Garissa University College in Kenya on Thursday 2 April, St John Ambulance Kenya called for an emergency blood donation to help the victims.

Working with the Kenya National Blood Transfusion Service and Bloodlink Foundation, St John Kenya set up the facility for volunteers to donate blood at a major bus terminal in the centre of Nairobi.

Already hundreds including St John Ambulance staff and volunteers have donated their blood since Monday 6 April in the hope to save some of the casualties’ lives.

Sir Paul Lambert, Secretary General of St John International said:

St John Ambulance Kenya has done a lot of good work supporting the community in times of emergencies. Once again we applaud them for continuing to help those in need during the most difficult of times
