BELIZE CITY, Thurs. Sept. 24, 2015–Maria Dolores Castro, 65, was knocked down by a motorcycle as she was walking home from work at Mile 2 on the Philip Goldson Highway, and she suffered massive bodily injuries, including fractures to two of her arms, and one of her legs.
Castro was rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH), but doctors there said that they must perform surgery on Castro to repair her fractures, and 5 pints of O-negative blood must be obtained before they can proceed with the surgery.
Castro has since been released from the KHMH, and she is at home awaiting the blood so she can proceed with the surgery.
The family is now appealing to friends and the public to donate the blood.
People who want to donate blood can go to the blood bank near the KHMH and make the donation in the name of Maria Dolores Castro.
