The blood donation drive is also being conducted at Sakra World Hospital premises from June 15th 2022 – June 18th 2022.

Based on the theme for 2022; “Donating blood is an act of solidarity. Join the effort and save lives,” the drive is aimed at drawing attention to the roles that voluntary blood donations play in saving lives and enhancing solidarity within communities. The drive, according to Mr. Yuichi Nagano, Managing Director– Sakra World Hospital, will “help in raising awareness to create a sustainable blood bank system and work towards increasing the rate of collection from voluntary blood donors.”
Dr Rani Premkumar, Head of Transfusion Medicine at Sakra World Hospital, further explained, “Blood and blood products are essential in managing blood disorders and clinical emergencies is a known fact. While the need is universal, the shortage of blood donors continues to stay owing to social stigmas and lack of awareness regarding blood donation.
