World Blood Donor Day

Starting with a true incident, shall we?
Smriti, who was injured in a two-wheeler accident, had internal bleeding and needed 5 pints of B-positive blood for immediate operation.

It was difficult to get 5 pints of blood at a time in a blood bank and here was the danger of human life. Blood was supplied by calling blood donors through social media and today Smriti is recovering. If the blood is not supplied in time, many lives will be in danger. Blood donation is the most virtuous earning of human civilization and let's talk about earning this virtue today.

Remember that June 14 of every year is celebrated all over the world as Blood Donor Day. Blood donors are giving a new height to humanity by voluntarily donating blood to many other people like Smriti, Hamro Patro today salutes all those blood donors. Blood Donor Day is being celebrated on June 14, the birthday of Carl Landsteiner, the scientist who discovered human blood groups. The celebration of this day was started in 2004 at the call of the World Health Organization. This day is also celebrated as Blood Donation Day.

This day is celebrated as a heroic campaign to spread awareness about the importance of blood and to thank the blood donors for their contribution to saving human lives. This day promotes a sense of volunteerism to motivate young people as new blood donors and to honor regular blood donors. The first Blood Donor Conference was organized in Nepal on BS. 2070 (Jestha 30 and 31) in recognition of the blood donors who fulfilled the need for blood. There are eight types of human blood groups and blood from matching groups according to their blood type is transfused into them. In this way, before donating blood, the blood of the donors is checked to see if there is an infection. In this way, donors are also informed about their medical history and health.

Generally, there is a difference of 3 months between donating blood once and donating blood again. While talking about blood donation, we may be wondering what it takes to donate blood, but some of us may already know these things. The minimum body weight for donating blood is 50 Kgs, a minimum of 18 years, and a maximum of 60 years. Blood donor boundaries may vary by country.

Blood donation is a life donation. Some things are not available even after paying money, some things are not sold in the shop and some things are not available in time, people's lives are in danger. Blood is considered among such things. Blood is an indispensable substance in the body of every human being, delivering the necessary things to every tissue, balancing the body temperature, and protecting our vitality, blood is life.

Because we donate blood, a parent gets his child back, a family gets the life of a loved one, and society does not have to lose a member prematurely. Donating blood does not harm our body and provides a measure of freshness and self-satisfaction. There is no need to be a doctor to save someone's life, blood donors are God's idols.

In Nepal too, the number of voluntary organizations and networks for blood donation has been increasing in recent times. Today, Hamro Patro also wants to commemorate all those organizations and networks, Youth for Blood, Blood Pal, Healthy Citizen Nepal, Red Cross, and many other organizations and networks to facilitate blood donation and spread public awareness, this is commendable.
Some of us are afraid to donate blood because we are scared to be stabbed with a needle, which is very ridiculous. Blood donation is a very simple and common thing, what could be more proud than being able to donate life?

If you need blood to save the life of your brother or sister or family member, would you refrain from donating blood? Similarly, many brothers and sisters need blood, blood donors are life donors, don't hesitate to donate blood. All must unite to make Nepal free from blood shortage. Leaving a question to all of us who are above 18 years? Have you donated blood? Jayhoss

Hamro Patro - Connecting Nepali Communities
Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
