Colleagues of former minister of state in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Delano Franklyn, are appealing for the public's assistance with blood donations.

Franklyn, a former People's National Party senator, has been hospitalised since early September. 

The 62 year old is in critical condition at the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI), a close contact with knowledge of his illness told The Gleaner.

He was diagnosed with a rare disease a few years ago. 

Persons wishing to assist are being asked to donate blood under his name at the Blood Bank of Jamaica or at the hospital's blood bank.

The receipt should be submitted to the head nurse at Annex UHWI.
