Every year, on June 14th, countries around the world celebrate World Blood Donor Day (WBDD). Blood is an important resource, both for planned treatments and urgent interventions. It can help patients suffering from life-threatening conditions live longer and with a higher quality of life, and supports complex medical and surgical procedures.
This year this day is hosted by Greece, with the theme ‘Blood Connects Us All’ and slogan “Be there for someone else. Give blood. Share life”.
