My donation journey started when I responded to an acquaintance’s call for blood donation and I have not looked back since. I’ve been a regular donor for the past 30 years and I will continue to give blood as long as I get the all-clear from my health assessment. It has become a habit for me to donate blood and I would feel that something is missing if I missed a donation.
Donating blood is one way of giving back to society. You cannot manufacture blood like medicine, so it’s important for people to realise the significance of this act of giving.
