The Mamprobi Deanery of COSRA (Catholic Organisation for Social and Religious Advancement) at the weekend held a blood donation exercise at the St. Margaret Mary Parish dubbed: ”The Lawrence Kom Memorial Blood Donation.”
The blood donation is organised yearly in memory of the late Lawrence Kwesi Kom, who was then a National Organiser and passed away 10 years ago (January 27, 2008) through a fatal motor accident.
This activity takes place yearly to stock the national blood bank in order to save lives.
The Mamprobi deanery which consist of six parishes thus Sacred Heart, Star of the Sea, St. Peter and St Paul (SSPNP), Martyrs of Uganda, St Peters, St. Margaret Mary’s and Holy Family saw over one hundred COSRAns in attendance and 61 people donating to help save lives.
Financial Secretary of COSRA for the Mamprobi Deanery, Mr Kennedy Dery, expressed appreciation to the members for making the blood donation a success and also for donating their blood to save lives.
“Our motto is service to God and mankind, and since we all don’t have money to give out, we donate our blood to save lives of people in dire need,” he added.
COSRA is a youth group in the Catholic Church that brings together the youth of the church to promote social and religious activities among members and also to encourage the spirit of voluntary service to the church both among members and the youth of the parish.
The aim of COSRA is to inculcate in members the habit of obedience, discipline, self-respect and humility towards the attainment of true manhood and also to stimulate and direct in every way possible members ambition along the Christian way of life.
