    Today is World Hemophilia Day and the local organization, The Society for Inherited and Severe Blood Disorders of T&T, is seeking to educate citizens.

    It is a condition in which the blood’s ability to clot is severely reduced, causing the sufferer to bleed profusely from even a slight injury.

    However, the Society’s Vice President Mervyn Virgil says raising awareness about these types of disorders is a challenge.

    With regards to today’s observation, Mr Virgil says a few activities are on the cards.

    Persons attending the event tonight are asked to wear red.

    The Society’s Vice President was speaking on TV6 today.
