I have an awesome announcement to make! I donated my blood!!!!!!!!! 😀 😀
It may sound ordinary to some people but it was an amazing milestone for me! 🙂 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. 🙂 (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 College (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
- Hepatitis test
- Calcium test
- ENT (Ear Nose Throat)
- Dental checkups
- BMI (Body-Mass-Index)
- Diabetes test
- Eyesight test
- Breast Cancer
- Obesity check
The top-left picture shows me enjoying the yellowish, honey-mint drink. (But, to be honest, it tasted like mouthwash 😀 ) Contrary to my expectation, I didn’t get symptoms of dizziness after the loss of blood. So it was a win-win situation. 🙂
Despite the presence of thousands of people, the event was well-organized. Thanks to Pakistan Welfare Association (PWA) and Karachi Medical & Dental College for organizing 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.
