World Blood Donor Day (14 June)
World Blood Donor Day is commemorated annually on June 14. The theme for this year's World Blood Donor Day was “Don't wait until disaster strikes. What can you do? Give blood, Give now, Give often”. The main objective of the event was to encourage the Swazi adult population to donate blood and the UN staff in particular to become regular, voluntary blood donors.
The major highlight of the day was voluntary blood donation by the United Nations staff. This was a well appreciated noble initiative from the World Health Organization (WHO) Country Office in the spirit of Delivering as One (DaO) and through the leadership of the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) and the coordination of the UN Cares and the United Nations Communications Group (UNCG).
