He noted that the initiative is aimed at enhancing medical, scientific, and societal values and instilling these values in people to encourage further giving and the sense of belonging. “Donating blood is a humane duty that reflects positively on society members and might save the life of people in critical condition where available donors of the precise same blood type are scarce, not to mention its medical benefits, as it helps to renew the donors cells and activity,” he said.
