Project Name : Annual Blood Donation Project
Project Description :
Importance of Blood Donation Project
Because the need for blood is constant, so is the need for donations. Every day, all the hospitals and clinics in need blood and blood components to treat patients, since most surgical interventions and a great number of medical procedures require blood transfusions.
1. Objective of the Signature Project
The build wider public awareness of the need for regular blood donation throughout the year in order to maintain an adequate supply of blood for all patients requiring transfusion and to encourage a culture of blood donation among the local community by:
a) Encouraging existing low-risk voluntary donors to give blood regularly.
b) Encouraging new people to donate their blood on a voluntary unpaid basis.
c) Promoting low-risk behaviour so that individuals protect their own health as well as being safe to donate blood.
