World blood donors day June 14 poster

June14th is the World blood donor Day(WBDD).There is a need for more people to donate blood on a regular basis, especially in developing countries where blood shortages are particularly acute.WBDD is held  each year as a worldwide celebration to honor and thank those people who donate their blood on a voluntary, unpaid basis: it is a special day to acknowledge these donors who are providing the strongest foundation for a safe and sustainable blood supply.

If you’re a donor, you are great, and every day thousands of people rely on blood and blood products helping then to recover from illness ranging from accidents, surgery severe burns, chemotherapy, hemorrhoids and many more. There are little people whose lives haven’t been touched by donated blood. If you haven’t donated before, it’s never too late to start. Do you know that, less than 3.5% of the eligible population donates now? It doesn’t hurt; it takes less than an hour. Your donation can help up to three people when they split it into whole blood, platelets and plasma, and even you can burn off 650 calories in a single donation!

Do you feel you don’t have much to offer? You have the most precious resource of all: the ability to save a life! Help share this invaluable gift with someone in need.

Donate and share, because, we need each other.

VU2DFD is going to be the most active repeater in kerala. Lot of stations is heard from the near by districts like Kollam,Kottayam Idukky, Ernakulam etc. I heard some stations from kovilpatty also.With its superb setup, it is going to be the first of its kind in Kerala.
