Volunteer for Blood Donation!

June 14th was celebrated as The World Blood Donor Day across the world. This special day created an awareness environment throughout the world for people to become volunteers when it comes to donating blood rather than letting the matter become a forced duty.

Volunteering blood donations in Pakistan can save a lot of lives. World Health Organization (WHO), International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent International Society of Blood Transfusion and the International Federation Donors Society are all united in making Pakistan free of blood diseases.

According to the statistics, there are around 245,000 blood donations made in Karachi every year. This year, WHO celebrated this day with the theme of “Blood connects us all”. With this theme, WHO aimed to encourage people of the world to donate blood regularly with the slogan, “Share life. Give blood”.

Since several years, Pakistan is actively taking part in celebrating World Blood Donor Day. There were also some activities organized for this day by the government’s Safe Blood Transfusion Program in 2010 along with the collaboration of the German government. With all the efforts, this program has become a national voice for blood safety in Pakistan.

It is the need of time that this awareness regarding volunteer blood donation should be increased at grassroots levels. This can be done by encouraging it at school and other academic levels. Families should be given guidance by medical experts so that the culture of volunteer blood donation can be established in Pakistan.
