"Being a mother of children, I know that if there is ever an emergency, I want the hospitals to have blood on hand if my children ever need it", said Chan.

"Together Albany donors have given up close to 2200 litres of blood in the past year, and helped save the lives of nearly 14,000 Australians", Ms Willet said.

A lack of mechanism for what happens to blood after it is donated leads to hospitals in place that extract plasma out of blood and sell it to the pharma companies, who in turn make pure profits running into crores of rupees.

14th June is well remarked as the blood donor day all across the globe.

The summer months are always tough on Red Cross blood collections, particularly around holidays like the Fourth of July. "In so doing we are saving more lives of people in need", she said. Since receiving blood was a priority for Michael, Mark Donnison adds that Canadians can make giving blood a priority for them.

The RA NA deputies Hrayr Tovmasyan, Naira Zohrabyan, Margarit Yesayan and Karen Avagyan were awarded Blood Donor honourable badge for showing active participation in the process of voluntary blood donation. The unavailability of blood has led to deaths and many patients suffering from ill-health. On the day before World Blood Donor day on Tuesday, the district blood bank authorities rewarded people who donated the maximum units of blood to the blood bank here as a means to promote blood donation in the district. This year the theme of campaign is - What can you do? It is satisfying to see even students coming forward to donate blood. There is a constant need for regular blood supply because blood can be stored for only a limited time before use.

But although Alves made a decision to go with another club, Marotta said that they still wish him luck. The Brazilian right-back has been widely linked with a possible switch to Man City.

Lawrence Duffey who has been donating blood for over ten years, took part in the blood donation to give back to the good of humanity.

Apart from the above guidelines, few other things also need to be kept in mind.

You should not have high blood pressure.

In a statement, the organization called for 150,000 donations across Canada by July 1 to ensure there's enough blood to meet patient's needs throughout the summer.

PB Acharya said that every year on 14 June, countries around the world observe World Blood Donor Day.
