Hyderabad: On the occasion of “World Blood Donor Day,” Telangana Governor Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan extended her best wishes to all the blood donors, who are unselfishly donating blood to save precious lives, in the State of Telangana and all over the world.
“Blood Donors are the main saviours of millions of lives every year all over the world. Blood donation is a noble, humane, and invaluable act. The celebration of World Blood Donor Day serves as the right occasion to recognise, salute, and thank the voluntary blood donors for their generous service,” the Governor said in her message on Monday.
The Governor said that this year the slogan for World Blood Donor Day is “Donating blood is an act of solidarity. Join the effort and save lives”. “I am sure that regular and voluntary blood donations need to be encouraged in the true spirit of the slogan. Donation of blood to those in critical health conditions is a pious act and let us all resolve that there should not be even a single fatality due to the non-availability of blood in Telangana State in particular and elsewhere in the world in general,” the Governor said.“The role of blood donors is greatly appreciated in these challenging circumstances of COVID-19. Great noble souls are coming forward to give blood voluntarily even during the COVID 19 situation to save the lives of children suffering from Thalassemia and Sickle Cell diseases. I once again congratulate, thank and salute all the voluntary blood donors for their exemplary show of humanity and courage displayed and rising to the occasion by donating blood to save many lives,” the Governor added.
