Sir: The world’s blood donor day is observed every year on June 14 carrying the slogan for the day “What can you do? Give blood, give now and give often.”
Blood donation is often judged warily, but the practice is a clear call to humanitarianism. Hopefully, the blood donors are widely large in number in Pakistan. As per a report 6,866 blood donor unit had been providing blood to thalassaemia patients.
Most importantly, blood-donation surely helps the patients but it is better for donors to have their medical test before donating blood as it may cause danger for both donor and patient.
