World Blood Donor Day today

June 14, 2021

ISLAMABAD: World Blood Donor Day will be marked today (Monday) across the globe including Pakistan to raise awareness of the problem and thank donors worldwide. Safe blood supplies are a scarce commodity, especially in developing countries. Giving blood is easy and saves lives. Many events would be arranged around the world on June 14 to mark World Blood Donor Day. These include football matches, concerts, and mobile blood donation clinics.

In 2011, the World Health Organization (WHO) called upon communities world-wide to symbolically “paint the world red” by colouring, covering, or lighting monuments and landmarks.
