In a press release the ministry stated that it continues to experience shortage of blood in its facilities and therefore encourages the public to donate blood in large numbers and regularly. 

“A total of 40,000 units of blood is needed annually. This target is, however, never met. To meet the target, we need at least two percent of the eligible population to donate blood regularly,” it noted.
