Every year countries around the world celebrate World Blood Donor Day (WBDD). The event serves to raise awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products and to thank voluntary, unpaid blood donors for their life-saving gifts of blood.

A blood service that gives patients access to safe blood and blood products in sufficient quantity is a key component of an effective health system. The global theme of World Blood Donor Day changes each year in recognition of the selfless individuals who donate their blood for people unknown to them.

Blood donation is a noble task, and is used to treat various medical conditions, such as blood loss, Anemia and cancer. In the process of blood donation, usually a person donates blood to the blood bank or to an organisation that collects blood for transfusion. Blood donation is an important task required for the constant supply of healthy blood for the healthcare industry. Every year, World Blood Donor Day is observed to raise awareness about the importance of blood donation and to urge more people to donate blood. As we gear up to celebrate the special day, here are a few things that we should keep in mind.

The 20th anniversary of World Blood Donor Day is an excellent opportunity to thank blood donors across the country for their life-saving donations over the years and honour the profound impact on both patients and donors.

We take this opportunity to thank and recognize the incredible voluntary blood donors who have contributed to the health and well-being of people in need around the country.
