Ottawa - July 2nd, 2018

 

After the huge national campaign of the blood donation on April 14th, 2018 and as part of the 151th Canada Day celebration, Humans for Peace Institution (HPI) organised the "Humans for Peace Giving Life" on Monday July 2nd, 2018, at the Canadian Blood Services located at 1575 Carling Avenue.

 

Over twenty five participants from different nationalities, religion, and ethnicities celebrated the Birthday of Canada by donating blood and helping save the lives of many Canadians who need blood, blood products and stem cells. Their generosity is a sign of their appreciation to their new country and their continuous engagement and commitment to their local communities.

 

In addition to the psychological benefit obtained by donating blood to those in need, all donors got a mini-physical check-up (blood pressure and hemoglobin levels), and other benefits such as reducing the risk of heart disease and cancer, weight loss and calories burning, formation of new blood cells.

 

We give because it matters!
