World Blood Donor Day
Within the framework of the celebration of World Blood Donor Day, this June 14, 2017, the Global Embassy of Activists for Peace unites with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) in the call made to all the people, especially youths, to voluntarily donate this vital liquid that can save the lives of millions of people.
Before the possibility of emergencies, natural disasters or human made disasters, such as traffic accidents, it is crucial to create awareness in the citizens and call for action, because voluntary blood donation is of vital importance to preserve the life of people who need blood transfusions, especially in these emergency situations.
During the celebration of World Blood Donor Day we will be honoring and thanking the voluntary donors that participate in this act of solidarity, and we motivate the citizens to participate and make a commitment to donate blood throughout the year. This way, it is possible to immediately attend possible emergencies.
The emphasis of the campaign of World Donor Day for 2017, is emergency donations. What can you do? How can you help? Give blood. Give now. Give often.
