A family wants urgent help for their loved one who was shot hours ago.

Issuing an appeal for blood on her Facebook this evening, Tuesday, October 22, the niece of today's gunshot victim posted:

"My aunty was shot this afternoon and is receiving emergency surgery right now. She has lost a lot of blood and is in critical condition. If you or anyone can donate blood tomorrow at the blood bank (8am to 3pm). I would really appreciate it."

There was an additional call to action attached to the appeal. The plea was for persons to repost and share the post.

So far it has been reposted and shared successfully by many of her niece's classmates and friends to round up plenty of donors.

The appeal asked persons to donate in her name, Sandra Burrowes. Her niece does not reside in Barbados.

Persons can go The Blood Collection Centre in Jemmotts Lane, St Michael. It is located next to the Winston Scott Polyclinic.
