The blood donation camp was organized on Saturday, June 2, 2018, at Sarvottam SACCOS, with the help of Nepal Red Cross society. It began at around 9 am and continued up to 1 pm, with a steady stream of donors throughout. The corridor of the first floor of the coop was buzzing with youngsters chatting with each other, happy to be able to play their part in lending a helping hand to people in the region.
We just don’t need special reasons for donating blood, we just need our own reasons which can be one following reason below: -
Some of us donated blood because it is requested or refereed by a friend.
Some know that a family member or a friend might need blood someday.
Some believe it is the right thing to do.
Whatever is your reason there is a need for constant contribution for a healthy and reliable blood supply. When a person willingly draws his blood and it is used for transfusion, it is known as blood donation. Blood bank often participates in the collection process to test out the donor to be safely used by other patients if need be. Donors are check for the following aspects for the safety of the donors as well as recipient:-
Donations - the only way of obtaining blood. Although Medical and Technological advancements have been accomplished in different fields, it is inaccurately pointed that blood can currently be manufactured artificially but the reality is contrary and the only source is blood donation preserved in blood banks. In developed countries donors are volunteers who donate for their community and whereas in developing countries people donate only when their family and friends need it. It came to light, some of donors have fear of needle that is why they faint otherwise donating is very safe. The prospective donors are being checked that blood is safe for use. Specialist medical staffs are available at all times during the donation drive making it safe and painless procedure for the donors.
