World Blood Donor Day is commemorated annually on June 14th, to thank all the voluntary, unpaid blood donors worldwide for their life-saving gifts, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. This campaign is initiated by WHO to raise awareness of the need for regular blood donations and encourage more young people to participate. This year’s campaign theme is “Give Blood and Keep the World Beating”. It emphasizes the importance of the blood donors’ contributions by saving lives and keeping the world pulsating. Blood donors are considered the safest way to obtain a sufficient amount of blood supply. Therefore, every support will bring a substantial impact on this campaign.
A bit of your blood could save a life. So, make a difference and be a hero.
Happy World Blood Donors Day!
