Arise! Awake! Stop not till you have saved a life!

Do something amazing today!

Dear All,

Consulate General of India, Dubai in association with Indian Community Welfare Committee andFriends of India is organizing a Blood Donation Camp to commemorate Indian Independence Dayat the Indian Consulate Auditorium on
12 August 2011 from 9:30am to 11:30 am


 This is to support the Dubai Blood Bank to meet their emergency requirement of Blood.
We sincerely request you to help this camp by donating blood and
encouraging your friends and family to donate blood.

Who can donate?

* Aged between 18 and 60 years

* If you are not already given blood in last 16 weeks

 Did you know?

The average adult has 10 to 12 pints of blood in their body.

The donated blood is replaced into the system from the reserves over a
period of 4-5 hrs.

Your one donation can save up to three lives!

Every 3 3/4 seconds, someone needs a blood transfusion. 

That's 16 people every minute; 960 every hour; 23,040 every day; or
8,409,600 every year.

No viable substitute for blood has ever been found, so when you need it,
the only place to get it is from another human being.

Any day, these facts could mean the difference between life and death.

The average life of a blood cell is 90 days so new blood is put into the
system regularly.

Donate Blood to Save Lives.

With Warm Regards
