WBDD 2018: This is how we did it!


On the occasion of the World Blood Donor Day (WBDD), which falls on the 14th of June of every year, we organized many activities to thank all those who donated or tried to donate blood:

  • Outdoor billboard campaign: thanks to Promomedia, Primedia & Vivad, we displayed visuals all over Lebanon during the two weeks leading up to the 14th of June

  •  Offering flowers in Saida: our clubs in Saida visited crowded areas as people were eating after a long day of fasting (“iftar” during Ramadan). Blood donors especially were given flowers from our volunteers, thanking them for their acts

  • Live blood donation with Sawt el Mada: On the actual day of the celebration, we started since the early morning to receive blood donors in our Mobile Blood Bank, parked in front of Mike Sport (Zalka highway). Calls for blood donation, answering people’s questions, and clarifying the situation of blood donation in Lebanon, all happened during the live morning interview with Samar Maalouf
