Every June 14, the world commemorates World Blood Donor Day as a form of appreciation to donors who have saved millions of lives.

This day is also an important momentum to raise awareness of the importance of blood donation and the need for a safe and secure blood supply for those in need.

The Importance of Blood Donation

Blood donation is a noble act that can save many lives. According to the Indonesian Red Cross (PMI), one bag of blood can save three lives.

Every drop of blood donated can be life-changing for those who experience emergency conditions, such as accidents, major surgeries, or chronic illnesses that require regular blood transfusions.

Why should we donate blood?

Saving lives is one of the main reasons why blood donation is so important. Each blood donation can save up to three lives, making this act extremely meaningful to those in need.

Additionally, maintaining adequate blood stocks at PMI is vital for dealing with various urgent medical conditions. Sufficient blood availability can ensure that those in need of transfusions can receive timely assistance.

Donating blood regularly can also help maintain the donor’s personal health. This activity can help in maintaining a healthy heart and blood circulation, as well as providing an opportunity for donors to monitor their health conditions through the checks done before donating.

Untar Blood Donation Activity

Untar, as one of the leading educational institutions in Indonesia, has a strong commitment in supporting social activities, including blood donation.

In collaboration with PMI, blood donation activities are organized regularly by Untar. Through this activity, Untar not only plays a role in producing a generation that excels in academics, but also in social and humanitarian concerns.

In the framework of Dies Natalis, Untar always includes blood donation activity as one of the series of events. This activity involves not only students, but also lecturers, staff, and the surrounding community.

This shows that the spirit of solidarity and humanity is an integral part of the values instilled by Untar.

World Blood Donor Day is a moment for all of us to reflect on the importance of blood donation and how a simple act can have a huge impact on human life.

Happy World Blood Donor Day, let us together support the blood donor movement and be part of those who care and contribute to saving the lives of others.
