World Blood Donor Day 2017 Observed at Narayan Nursing College

Every year, on 14 June, countries around the world celebrate World Blood Donor Day (WBDD). The event serves to raise awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products and to thank blood donors for their life-saving gifts of blood.

Blood is an important resource, both for planned treatments and urgent interventions. It can help patients suffering from life-threatening conditions live longer and with a higher quality of life, and supports complex medical and surgical procedures. Blood is also vital for treating the wounded during emergencies of all kinds (natural disasters, accidents, armed conflicts, etc.) and has an essential, life-saving role in maternal and perinatal care.

Similar to every year World Blood Donor day was observed at Narayan Nursing College but with a change in the actual date of observance ( due to severe hot climate). This year it was observed on 17th July 2017, a Blood Donation Camp was organized to mark the day. Many Students, Faculty and Staffs willingly took part in the Blood Donation Camp.
