APIN Partners With NBSC To Commemorate World Blood Donor Day!

June 14 is World Blood Donor Day and APIN partnered with National Blood Service Commission for various activities commemorating the WBDD.

During the course of the WBDD week, APIN joined the NBSC, and other partners to kick off the day with a Sensitization/Awareness road walk and press briefing in Abuja.

We then rounded up this year’s World Blood Donor Day activities with a radio engagement on Armed Forces Radio 107.7 FM Abuja and also partnered with the National Blood Service Commission (NBSC) to host a Secondary School Blood Safety Symposium and Quiz competition!

With over 10 schools in attendance, we are delighted to see the younger generation excel in the knowledge of blood safety, blood donation and its importance in saving lives.

Army Day Secondary School, Maitama, Abuja won the debate competition while Government Girls Secondary School, Dutse – Abuja won the Quiz competition.

Our deepest gratitude goes to everyone who made this year’s WBDD a success. Remember, it is our civic responsibility to donate blood, donate often and save a life!

We applaud the efforts of NBSC in increasing public awareness and participation in blood donation and for ensuring that safe blood and blood products are available for saving lives. We also thank every voluntary blood donor for the lifesaving gifts of their blood. You are true heroes!
