World Blood Donor Day

World Blood Donor Day

Did you know India today faces a shortage of 19 Lakh units of blood -equivalent to 60 tankers–that could have aided more than 3,20,000 heart surgeries or 49,000 organ transplants.

Apart from surgeries, patients being treated for sickle cell anemia, thalassemia and hemophilia also require large quantities of blood daily.

Given that the eligible donor population of India is more than 512 million, this deficit is surprising. This World Blood Donor Day Lets Act and Donate Blood.
