Blood donor shortages in South Sudan

Cultural fears of falling ill means many South Sudanese refuse to come forward as potential blood donors.

    Doctors in South Sudan say hospital patients are dying because not enough people are giving blood.

     
    There's a shortage of supplies because cultural taboos are stopping donors from coming forward.

    Al jazeera's Anna Cavell reports from the South Sudanese capital, Juba.
