VIEUX FORT, St. Lucia — Countries around the world will celebrate World Blood Donor Day on June 14th, 2016. World Blood Donor Day is designed to raise awareness about the need for safe blood donations and thank volunteers for their donations.

True to its commitment to the community of St. Lucia and in observation of World Blood Donor Day, International American University in association with St. Jude Hospital Blood Bank Services and Victoria Hospital Blood Bank Services will host a Mega-Blood Donation Drive on Tuesday, 14th June 14th, 2016. The event will begin 10 a.m. and take place in front of the IAU Campus Building in Vieux Fort.

This year’s theme, “Blood Connects Us All,” focuses on thanking blood donors and highlights the unique connection and bond between donors and patients. The campaign also seeks to motivate regular blood donors to continue giving blood as well as encourage more community involvement.

Coming off the success of last year’s event, with 63 units of blood being donated, this year the university hopes to match and surpass that amount. The event is open to the public and the university hopes to inspire the community to give back and help save lives.
