World Blood donation Day: June 14, 2016

 

 

There are many reason why we need to donate Blood, unfortunately we got reminded of it this past weekend. According to The WHO (World Health Organization), blood donation are needed mainly for:

·         Women with complications of pregnancy, such as ectopic pregnancies and hemorrhage before, during or after childbirth
·         Children with severe anemia often resulting from malaria or malnutrition
·         People with severe trauma following man-made and natural disasters
·         Many complex medical and surgical procedures and cancer patients.
·         It is also needed for regular transfusions for people with conditions such as thalassemia and sickle cell disease and is used to make products such as clotting factors for people with hemophilia.
 
Blood is the most precious gift that anyone can give to another person — the gift of life. A decision to donate your blood can save a life, or even several if your blood is separated into its components — red cells, platelets and plasma — which can be used individually for patients with specific conditions.
 
The American Red Cross is having numerous blood drive this coming weeks. Eligible individuals can make an appointment to give blood by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App (available on www.redcrossblood.org), or calling 1-800-RED CROSS.
