On Wednesday 15 and Thursday 16th March 2017, a number of teachers from Mariam Albatool visited the blood donation unit at the Blood Transfusion Unit, Gwardamangia Hill, Gwardamangia.

The gift of blood is the noblest and the most precious of all gifts. Blood is a precious gift that saves human lives and blood donation is a most remarkable noble act of service to humanity. All healthy persons have a duty to ensure that safe blood is available in adequate measures in our hospitals in Malta and Gozo. We all need to raise awareness amongst the population in favour of donating blood by motivating every healthy person to come forward and give blood voluntarily and regularly.

As a school, we extend our best wishes to all those engaged in promoting this noble cause. As medical science is advancing at a terrific speed, the need for blood is equally in very great demand in our country as there are many fatal accidents and complicated surgeries going on to save human lives. The timely availability of safe blood can save a life in distress.

Blood donation is entirely a safe procedure and builds an immediate and immeasurable relationship between the donor and often an unidentified recipient. This gesture is within the reach of almost all of us. You don’t need a special reason to give blood. You just need your own reason. Whatever your motivation, the need is constant and your contribution is important for a healthy and reliable blood supply. And you’ll feel good knowing you’ve helped change a life.

The activity was organised upon the initiative of Ms Glorian Sammut who coordinated the activity by organising bus schedules from Mariam Albatool to the Blood Donation Unit and back.

The School administration would like to thank ALL DONORS from Mariam Albatool School who participated wholeheartedly in the activity. Particular thanks go to Ms Glorian Sammut for her initiative.
