Blood drive campaign has been one of Kano Hub’s annual projects that has become a tradition since the hub’s inception in 2013. The Hub organizes a Blood Drive to commemorate the World Blood Donor Day which holds on the 14th of June every year.
The aim of the campaign is to create awareness on the importance as well as benefits of voluntary blood donation, in addition to getting people to donate on this particular day.
The hub partners with health organizations and hospitals whose staff carry out the blood collection. Other health care professionals also volunteers to take donors’ vital signs (pulse rate, blood pressure, etc.) and counsel them on the benefits of donating blood regularly.
