The annual blood donation camp organized by the prefect's guild of Visakha Vidyalaya, Colombo.
Let us drop a few words here about the importance of blood donation.Some of you may know a friend or even a family member who has received blood at some time. I for one example have received blood and I often wonder who took the time to donate it.
According to the Journal of American Medical Association, it is noted that just 1 pint of blood can save three lives.Giving blood does not just benefit recipients. Regardless of age, donating blood offers many benefits for donors. It lets you : time-consuming tests. Then, it must be used relatively quickly or it will perish-whole blood for instance, according to the American Red Cross, is no longer usable after 42 days. As a result, maintaining an adequate blood supply is a challenge-especially when a disaster occurs, which may cause the need for blood to soar.
The only way to meet demand is to have regular donations from healthy volunteers.If you are healthy, your body-which has between 10 and 12 pints of blood-can easily spare about.
This event will be held on 18th June 2011 at School premises (Visakha Vidyalaya, Colombo).
