In Australia, over 27,000 blood donations are needed every week and with blood having a short shelf life, regular donations are vital for patients in need. Through Australian Red Cross Blood Service’s Red25 program, Youth Association and Martha Mariam Vanitha Samajam are joining Red Cross’s mission to save lives; to achieve 25% of all blood donations needed in this country. You can make a big difference to your community in saving lives, by donating blood.
