World Blood Donor Day 2021

World Blood Donor Day 2021

Every year countries around the world celebrate World Blood Donor Day. Blood donation can save lives. The aim is to raise global awareness to increase the collection of blood from voluntary, non-remunerated blood donors.

Blood donation saves millions of lives and improves the health and quality of life of many patients every day. The need for blood is universal, but access to blood for all those who need it is not. Blood shortages are particularly acute in developing countries. To ensure that everyone who needs safe blood has access to it, all countries need voluntary, unpaid donors who give blood regularly

Blood donation is not only a service to humanity, it is also good for our health. Know all about this year’s blood donor day
