Celebrating World Blood Donor Day 2019 at Sakra World Hospital

I feel a lack of awareness is the main reason behind people not coming forward to donate blood, subsequently leading to its shortage. We have to encourage voluntary blood donation through camps, campaigns, programmes, lectures, pamphlets and brochures.”- Dr. Rani Premkumar, Head, Transfusion medicine, Sakra World Hospital

14th june 2019 : A single blood donation can save at least 3 lives. This is a relatively simple procedure but sadly, public awareness and participation is low. This World Blood Donor Day, we organized a blood donation drive to raise awareness and encourage everyone to donate, starting with our staff.
