On June 30, 2018, within an 8-hour period, more than 4,000 voluntary blood donors registered and were recruited in multiple centres. It has been reported that no other organization has managed to achieve so many voluntary blood donor registrations for such short period of time.

Participants came from various strata of society under the same goal – “to demonstrate their feelings of kindness and love for humanity through voluntary blood donation”. The campaign is commemorative of the annual World Blood Donor Day, marked every year on June 14th.

The Chris Oyakhilome Foundation is a major donor partner of Trauma Care International Foundation. The non-governmental agency aims at contributing meaningfully through programs and initiatives to the improvement of emergency responses in nations where there’s need but less help.
