Noida: â€œVoluntary, unpaid blood donations must be increased rapidly in more than half the worldâ€™s countries in order to ensure a reliable supply of safe blood for patients whose lives depend on it,â€ Dr. Ajay Kumar Director Mass Communication and Journalism read the statement issued by WHO at Asian School of Media Studies on World Blood Donor Day during the blood donation camp.
â€œThis year, the theme of World Blood Donor Day is â€œBlood connects us allâ€, highlighting the common bond that all people share in their blood. The slogan, â€œShare life, give bloodâ€, draws attention to the role that voluntary donation systems play in encouraging people to care for one another and promoting community cohesionâ€ said Sandeep Marwah President Marwah Studios.
â€œAlthough we have many external differences, the same vital blood pumps through all our veins. Voluntary, unpaid blood donation is the act of giving life â€“ the greatest gift any person can give or receive,â€ added Marwah.
â€œVoluntary blood donors come from all walks of life but they have one thing in common: they put others before themselves â€” people they donâ€™t even know. â€œEach time they donate blood, they commit an act of selfless heroism.,â€ said Dr. Alok Satsangi Director Department of Cinema at ASMS. More than 100 students donated blood during the session.
