Importance of Blood Donation

Our human body is a miracle of organization. No work of man can compare with it in accuracy of its process and the simplicity of its law. This law is the law of the universe, the law of opposites or opposition - and there needs to be opposition in all things that we might learn by our experience. So we can understand cold by experiencing hot or health when we experience sickness or dis-ease. Voluntary blood donation, traditionally considered a fulfilling task, seems to be losing its appeal. Statistics prepared by the Association of Voluntary Blood Donors’ Forum (AVBDF) on the percentage of voluntary blood donation to the total blood collection in individual states during the last one year, shows a rapid decline in the number of donors throughout India. Only few states have achieved the record where the percentage of voluntary blood donation to total collection stands above 80%.

Blood cannot be manufactured; it can only come from volunteer donors.

"The main reason why people do not donate blood is because no one has asked them to do so. If you motivate people, they will come forward. Don't hesitate. Tell them that through this noble act, they could potentially save precious lives." Blood donation is The most valued service to mankind.

Nothing is comparable to the preciousness of human blood. In spite of the rapid and remarkable conquests of medical science today, there is no laboratory that manufactures blood. It is only in human beings that human blood is made and circulated. For those who require blood for saving their lives, sharing from other fellows is the only means. Hence, donation rather voluntary donation is the only way of accumulating blood at safe storage to meet emergency requirements for saving lives.

Blood is required for treatment of accidental injuries, burns, diseases like Haemorrhagic, Anaemia, Leukaemias, Thalassemias and Haemolytic ailments. In times of accidental injuries that shed huge amounts of blood and also in various types of surgical operations for medical treatments, we require blood for transfusion. Unavailability of blood may cost lives. Hence, importance of blood donation is tremendous. This is the greatest gift one can give to the fellow humans. Voluntary blood donors are saviours of mankind. If someone really loves oneself and other fellow beings, the only way to express it is to donate blood voluntarily.

Safe blood transfusion comes under legal protection as it is life-saving and also fatal. Article 21 under part III of Indian Constitution spells out that no person shall be deprived of his life. The Consumer Protection Act of 1986 also covers blood as a commodity. Indian Panel Code chapter XIV, sections 269 and 270 also provide for protection against spread of infectious diseases due to negligent and malignant acts. Drugs and Cosmetics Act of 1940 also establishes regulations for blood banking and transfusions.

The role of blood in a living creature is unique.

Fear of needles, fear of pain, fear of sight of blood, fear of future weakness, fear of possible ill effects, objection from elders, ignorance and illiteracy etc. are all reasons for many people who are hesitant in donating blood. All these myths and misconceptions are to be removed in order that adequate amount of blood is made available.
