Netizens requested people to register themselves as a blood donor and help in order to raise awareness of the universal need for safe blood in the delivery of health care and services.
Every year, June 14 is celebrated as World Blood Donor Day in order to raise awareness about blood donation, since its inception in 2005.

Here's how netizens appealed to the citizens to donate blood and help in saving lives:

#BloodDonation is beneficial for both the recipient as well as the donor. After donating blood, the body works to replenish the blood loss, which stimulates the production of new blood cells & helps in maintaining good health.#WorldBloodDonorDay @PMOIndia @drharshvardhan pic.twitter.com/k1CtyYeGOB— Ministry of Health (@MoHFW_INDIA) June 14, 2019
