Many of you might be wondering why this heading and what on the earth it means. Sorry for the suspense people its World Blood Donor’s Day today as per Insta & FB. So on this day i will like to say thank you to all the people who I know and don’t know, who has donated Blood even once in their life.
As you all know that this topic is very close to my heart and many of the people’s life depends on daily basis or in emergent cases. But whatever the need maybe the fulfilment leads to dire results many a times had witnessed it personally.
I think it was Covid 1st wave April Mid and for my regular transfusions the blood bank gave a red signal that your blood group is currently not available and the overall blood and its related products are in a short supply. (I was like WTF)
Although after lot of calls here and there and few favours collected it was done a day late (but not a dollar short) and i was refuelled to keep moving for the next fortnight. (Thank you Unknown Angel).
After all this fiasco a brother (who wish not to be named) came forward along with couple of more guys to intervene the situation and act as my personal blood bank because they were of the same group and were always a text away for any time donation.
This got me thinking during that time, what would have happened if arrangement didn’t happened on time and me and my family & friend’s connections wouldn’t have worked in my favour..???
Apart from that how did the people who are not well connected faced the severe shortage of a necessary element…??? (Thanks once again Donor Angels & God)
Although we have came a long way in last couple of decades earlier people were too hesitant to come forward for blood donation and after effort of red cross and other organisations situation has improved a lot, still a long way to go in my honest opinion.
Dear readers if you have not did a blood donation till now and “IF” physically you are allowed / able to do so then it is my humble request please try doing it once (Don’t forget eating cookie & juice after it).
And for the Donor Angels thank you once again from bottom of my heart to keep doing the super work.
