Patients with rare blood types from the Pacific have had to access blood in New Zealand, due to shortages. Safe blood supply gained utmost importance for blood transfusion services and authorities started promoting voluntary blood donation. Keep in mind that blood only lasts for 42 days after donation, it can not be kept indefinitely, and that's why the SANBS needs a steady supply of blood to those who need it most.

Blood donated by Bertie, and other canine donors, have allowed the RVC to carry out over 600 blood transfusions each year.

He commended and thanked all blood donors for their life-saving acts.

Mr Mashi specifically noted that as long as the demand out strips the supply, touting and racketeering of blood and blood products would continue to thrive.

According to World Health Organization estimates, blood donation by 1 percent of the population is the minimum needed to meet a country's basic blood requirements.

Edmonton is home to one of the busiest blood donations centres in Canada.

New figures released this year show that 115,921 (24.8 per cent) fewer men donated blood this year compared to five years ago - while only a third of new donors were men. They do not tend to hide any health related information as they understand their blood is going to save many lives.

More are needed so there's enough plasma in hospital to treat patients. This campaign saves more than millions of lives annually and gives a natural smile on the face of blood receiver.

Christopher Erhabo, an official of IHVN, assured that there was no pain in donating blood. So the only way to restore lost blood quickly is through donation.

It is healthy for you to donate blood.

There are still many common misconceptions about who can give blood, but according to the NHS, most men aged between 17 and 66 are eligible, and it could save lives.

You can not donate blood if you have transmittable diseases like HIV, hepatitis B or C.

He emphasised that the situation could only be improved "If only one per cent of the country's adult population commit themselves to voluntary non-remunerated blood donation on a regular basis".

Donors such as Eyad Mousa, who donated blood around 40 times, were among those awarded during the ceremony. The amount of blood donated increased by 74.7 percent from 10 years ago, the local health authority revealed ahead of Friday's World Blood Donor Day.

From time to time, the government takes action against those dispensing contaminated or non-certified blood and cancel licenses file FIRs when required. And if it is the loss of blood you worry about, you needn't worry. So whenever we have spare time, we can visit the hospital and donate the blood.
