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.
