Kannur: The best way to serve and sacrifice for others is to donate blood. If people of the age group between 18 - 30 years come forward to donate blood, the blood banks in Kerala will get sufficient blood to stock.
The health department’s message for this year’s National Voluntary Blood Donation Day is to ‘celebrate your 18th birthday donating blood,’ said AIDS Control Society Project Director Dr. R. Ramesh in a press conference.
State level inauguration of National Voluntary Blood Donation Day will be held in Kannur on Sunday. Health Minister K. K. Sailaja will inaugurate the programme which highlights the slogan ‘Healthy youth towards voluntary blood donation’. Minister Kadannappalli Ramachandran will chair the function.
