With the World Blood Donor Day theme “Safe blood saves lives”, this activity also honors blood donors who paved the way to save someone else’s life.
Certain health protocols were observed such as physical distancing, hand sanitation, and wearing of face masks during the activity to ensure the safety of the participants.
