The Day I Saved A Person From Dying

I have an awesome announcement to make! I donated my blood!!!!!!!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

It may sound ordinary to some people but it was an amazing milestone for me! πŸ™‚ For years, I have been wanting to donate blood and help people in need. And this time I got the perfect opportunity at HOPES Health Expo 2017. πŸ™‚ (The blood bag with the orange label in the above picture).

HOPES Health Expo was organized by HOPES (Help of Patients in Exigency by Students) students of Karachi Medical & Dental CollegeΒ (KMDC) at Expo Centre, Karachi. Collaborating with other medical universities of Karachi, the event was a huge success!

Thousands of people turned up for the event where free medical tests were being run. The tests included:

  • Blood test
  • Thalassemia
  • Hepatitis test
  • Calcium test
  • ENT (Ear Nose Throat)
  • Dental checkups
  • BMI (Body-Mass-Index)
  • Diabetes test
  • Eyesight test
  • Dermatologist
  • Breast Cancer
  • Obesity check

The top-left picture shows me enjoying theΒ yellowish, honey-mint drink. (But, to be honest, it tasted like mouthwash πŸ˜€ ) Contrary to my expectation, I didn’t get symptoms of dizziness after the loss of blood. So it was a win-win situation. πŸ™‚

Despite the presence of thousands of people, the event was well-organized. Thanks toΒ Pakistan Welfare Association (PWA)Β and Karachi Medical & Dental CollegeΒ for organizingΒ HOPES Health Expo 2017

I want to encourage everyone to visit the nearest blood bank/hospital and donate your blood. Your contribution may save someone and extend their lives.
