Kabul (BNA) June 14, coincides with World Blood Donor Day—a day that appreciates those who donate their bloods to rescue the people lives. This day is also coincided with Prof. Karl Landsteiner birthday anniversary, a person that had invented blood groups and won the Nobel Prize. Transfusion of blood and blood products helps save millions of lives every year. It can help patients suffering from life-threatening conditions live longer and with higher quality of life and supports complex medical and surgical procedures. Access to safe and sufficient blood and blood products can help reduce rates of death and disability due to severe bleeding during delivery and after childbirth.
Each day, people, particularly those injure in traffic incidents, people under operations, pregnant women during labor, infants, those injure in terrorist incidents and in battlefields will need blood, as one out of three needs to be injected with blood during his/her life. Currently, despites considerable improvements in medical science, still nothing can replace blood in body of a person. Lack of good alternative with blood and limited duration of storing blood are the issues have caused blood donation to enjoy significant position. Findings suggest that consecutive donation of blood can prevent the donator from heart and different types of other diseases. Blood donation can caused oxygen to be supplied properly, as well as it causes the blood making system to be further operational.
Our war-hit country, Afghanistan needs more volunteer blood donators.
Because, each day, many civilians and soldiers will lose their lives or injure during horrific incidents and in battlefields throughout the country.
In fact, men can donate blood four times and the women three times each year. Today, in 62 countries of the world, blood is voluntarily collected, as the World Health Organization aims to ensure the blood of needy countries until 2020 through this.   Every year on 14 June, countries around the world celebrate World Blood Donor Day (WBDD). The event, established in 2004, serves to raise awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products, and to thank blood donors for their voluntary, life-saving gifts of blood. World Blood Donor Day is one of eight official global public health campaigns market by the WHO, along with World Health Day, World Tuberculosis Day, World Immunization Week, World Malaria Day, World No Tobacco Day, World Hepatitis Day, and World AIDS Day.
