Saving a life is something that is easy. You may not think that you are capable of saving a life. If I told you that it would take just 15 minutes of your time to save 3 lives? Would you give 15 minutes of your time to save those lives? Every 3 seconds, someone is in desperate need of blood.
We all need blood to survive, but for sick children, accident victims and cancer patients just to name a few – a shortage of donated blood means the difference between life and death. There is no substitute for blood. Blood donors are the only source of blood for these sick people. Their life depends on members of the community donating blood.
Blood Donation service was organized by ‘Friends of Compassion’ a charity service of Wellington Malayalee Association (WMA) in association with Wellington Malayali United Soccer Club (WMU). This charity service was held on 6 & 7 August 2012 at St. Andrews Church, 30 The Terrace. Around 20 people from the community participated in this project and helped the New Zealand Blood Service Center.
Requirement of safe blood is increasing day by day for which regular voluntary blood donation is vital for blood transfusion services. Towards this, we encourage you to join us and be a part of this service on an as required basis.
