“I’m presently at the University Hospital of the West Indies ICU where my pops has been fighting for his life humbly for the past two months. We’ve been asking family and friends to give blood if they can but right now he’s in dire need for blood, so if anybody can help out, I would greatly appreciate it.
“His name is Garth Henriques and he is in need of O Negative blood.”
Persons willing to donate blood to Mr Henriques can visit the UHWI between 9:30 am and 3:30 pm, or any other blood bank island wide, Sean Paul also stated.
