World Blood Donor Day

Safe blood for all

World Blood Donor Day 2019

Every year on the 14th of June we celebrate World Blood Donor Day and thank our donors for giving blood. The theme this year is "Safe blood for all". We take the time to thank voluntary, unpaid blood donors for their life-saving gifts of blood and also to raise awareness of the need for regular blood donations to ensure that all individuals and communities have access to affordable and timely supplies of safe and quality-assured blood and blood products, as an integral part of an effective health service. Make sure to check out our World Blood Donor Day Selfie boards on clinic all this week. Take a picture and tag us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn and help us share the message!
