Maghreb Blood Donor Day celebrated Thursday

ALGIERS- Algeria will celebrate, Thursday, the Maghreb Blood Donor Day, placed under the slogan “Blood Units Us, Let’s Share It!” through the organization of events, blood collection and awareness actions throughout the country.

The goal of the celebration of this day, which is on the 30th March of each year, is to “pay tribute to volunteer blood donors, make citizens aware, and convince them of the importance of blood donation,” said the National Blood Agency (ANS) in a communiqué Tuesday.

This three-day celebration will be carried out in close collaboration with many partners such as the ministry of National Education, the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Wakfs, the Algerian Television and the Radio, mobile phone operators and Algeria Post, as well the Directorate General of National Security (DGSN),” said the source.

In 2016, 557,001 blood bags were collected throughout the 217 blood transfusion facilities spread over the national territory, recalls the ANS, adding that 649,080 candidates came to these facilities to donate blood, a 3.2% increase compared to 2015.
