Ministry of Health Assistant Undersecretary for Medical Services Majeda Al-Qattan unveiled that that blood donors, from 75 nationalities living in Kuwait, had donated 80,000 blood bags this year.

The Ministry of Health uses the latest scientific means to assure the safety and purity of the collected blood, Al-Qattan said at a ceremony held by the ministry to mark the World Blood Donor Day.

Every year, on 14 June, countries around the world celebrate World Blood Donor Day. The event serves to thank voluntary, unpaid blood donors for their life-saving gifts of blood and to raise awareness of the need for regular blood donations to ensure the quality, safety and availability of blood and blood products for patients in need.

For her part, Director of the Blood Transfusion Department at the Ministry of Health Reem Al-Rodhwan said that Kuwait mark the occasion every year.

The ministry had honored several government and non-government organizations for their role in promoting the culture of blood donation, she said.
