BaretaNews calls on Cameroonians to do more and go to blood donation services and donate blood for these survivors and those battling their lives. General Hospital Yaoundé, Laquintini Hospital Douala, Military Hospital Yaoundé, CHU Yaoundé are some of the common areas. If you are in other parts of Cameroon, you can look for the nearest blood donation area to contribute. God bless you.

God is still saying something.
