Saving Lives: Blood donation @ DHPS

On the 15th of February, the NAM Blood Transfusion Service (NAMBTS) organized a blood donation drive at the Aula of the Deutsche Höhere Privatschule (DHPS). Students above the age of 16, along with teachers, and staff members, eagerly seized the opportunity to donate blood.

For many of us, it was our first time donating blood. As we settled into the donation chairs, a mix of excitement and nervousness filled the air. However, we found comfort in the reassuring presence and careful guidance provided by the dedicated healthcare professionals and volunteers of the NAMBTS team. Their warm welcome and efficient organization ensured that from morning to afternoon, donors felt supported every step of the way.

One might question the significance of blood donation. Is it merely an act of generosity? The answer is unequivocally no. Blood donation is about saving lives. It plays a critical role in surgeries, treating medical conditions, and addressing emergencies such as accidents or complications during childbirth.

Through our simple act of donating blood, we wield the power to make a profound difference in the lives of others. It's a gesture that requires minimal effort yet yields immeasurable impact.

If you're eligible and in good health, we urge you to consider participating in future blood donation drives. The NAMBTS team will return to the DHPS Aula on the following dates:
  • 17th April 2024
  • 13th August 2024

Be someone's lifeline; donate blood
