Your one trip to the blood bank can save 3 lives! Yes, you heard it right!
We may find a replacement, natural or artificial for anything that is broken or not working fine. However, the one thing that can only be replaced by the same thing in a human body is Blood.
Many patients are dependent on the blood that you voluntarily donate. Finding a donor is very difficult as the demand for blood is higher than the supply of blood. This reiterates the commitment that we need to have, as responsible human beings, towards others.
If we take that important step forward to go and help someone with the most precious and priceless thing in the body – blood, you might just end up giving the recipient a fresh breath of life!
