“This morning the Deputy Headteacher of Matero Boys’ Secondary School Br. Given Mukanshi S.M. donated blood to one of our Grade 12 pupils who was in ICU after an emergency stomach operation a few days ago. This is about two weeks before the Grade 12s start writing their final national examinations.

After the successful operation, the boy had been on life support which has since been turned off and he is now breathing normally. As of last night, he was short of two pints of blood. We pray for God’s healing power and a speedy recovery. All the best in the examinations.”
