  1. The diversity of comments is interesting.
    However, it appears most are just commenting for the sake of filling space.
    If you followed properly,mbts has only collected 30,000 thus remaining with a shortfall of 50,000
    Lack of blood is a serious issue which can determine whether one lives or not.
    Go to any hospital to appreciate.
    For such life and death issues,don’t comment if all you are wanting is to fill in space
    Good day.
