I have experienced family friends lost loved ones in Nigeria due to lack of blood. This inspired me to want to make a change. Blood for Life (B4L)was incorporated in England and Wales as a registered company in 2010. The objectives was to:
1) raise awareness of the need for more Africans and Afro Caribeans blood and organ donors using effective recruitment strategy within the community
Despite challanges the organisation has gone from strength to strength. B4L has worked in partnership with various government and non government agencies to enhance the Health and Wellbeing and contribute to the UN millennium Development Goals on Maternal Health.
B4L is a multi award winning organisation for it's work in providing opportunities for health charities, health professionals and communities to exchange ideas and the redistribution of medical equipment programme to low income countries .
In June 2016 I received a MBE in the Queen's birthday Honours for services to promoting blood and organ donation to the BAME community.
B4L continues to work in partnership with various organisation to fulfil it's mission and is grateful to NHS Blood and Transplant for their continuous support
