Single Adults in Brazil Respond to Blood Shortage

Posted by Ernest on September 8, 2012 at 10:40 PM

The public affairs committees and single adults of two Brazilian stakes—the Campo Grande Brazil Stake and the Campo Grande Brazil Monte Líbano Stake—recently organized a blood drive to help relieve a shortage of blood in area hospitals.

The drive, held on Saturday, February 18, was part of the second single adult conference in Campo Grande, which took place from February 18 to February 21, 2012. As they have done in the past, the stakes joined forces with Face Solidário, a humanitarian aid-focused Facebook group that fosters unity as the main tool for human development, according to the group’s online description. Hemosul, an organization focusing on hemotherapy and hematology in Mato Grosso do Sul, provided all the necessary equipment and personnel for the drive.

The blood drive focused on participation from single adults and young single adults from the Church but also encouraged the participation of people from the community. Among those who participated was Valdeclecio Rodrigues, 22, a member of the Universitário Ward of the Monte Líbano Stake.

“I am happy to help others, and grateful for the opportunity created by the leaders of the Church,” Brother Rodrigues said.

More than 100 people participated in the drive, which was significant considering that the drive was held during Carnival.

Maria Jose, a staff member of Hemosul, said that Carnival usually minimizes the number of blood donations received during this time of the year. “Saturday [February 18] was special because Hemosul was filled with donors,” she said.

Michele do N. N. C. Medina, a single adult leader in the Campo Grande stake, commented on how meaningful this kind of service is to single adults.

“This kind of action and how much difference it can make in the lives of those who will receive the blood are very important to young single adults,” she said. “We are not only donating blood—we are donating life!”

Compliment of the season to you over there.

My name is Mr. Abayomi Oyekami married to Mrs Abayomi Oyekami Patricia. We

respectively.

Presently I run an( N.G.O) called Actualization For The Needing Foundation

that there is a need to empowered our children and the youth, with the
necessary things like good Education, Food, Primary Health care, Portable
pipe borne water and others.

The first and second year of our inception was a successful one for the less
privilege ones who could not even eat a meal a day where provided two square
meal plus shelter and Education through what we called public-private
partnership. Government gave us a space to build our office and a loan which
we used in the building of an orphanage home which cost us #17 million
naira. On the private side, they gave us #8 million naira to provide food,
cloths and computers systems.

While on our side we gave out free Education from primary-secondary level
and free books.

We have been on with so many projects to better these children and youths
and we realize there is a need to get more found in making these children
and youth Age 5-20 years have a live hood and be part of the future leaders,
there fore , the need comes for Churches,organizations,companies to join hand in
making our dreams for these children and youth come to pass. We ask you to
be part of our dream for them by way of assisting either with food items,
money and others things that we keep the foundation and the children /
