Lockington's Everyday Fiji ... Life Goes On
On Thursday I took a few friends from Lautoka to donate blood at the Lautoka hospital. We got tested and gave 750ml of blood. It was interesting because when we arrived we were asked what patients we had come to give blood to.
There were a few men sitting outside the office and I asked them what they were there for. They said that they had come to give blood to a relative. It's interesting that people will only go up to the blood bank to donate when a relative needs blood. My friends who are taxi drivers decided that they wanted to give back to society something and they came up with a blood donation.
Someone said taxi drivers had been taking from us. Yes, but what they gave back was well over the cost of a taxi fare. So freely given, it was priceless.
