Each year, we hold very important events to either review our performance or celebrate our cherished blood donors. Blood donor days are our typical events we hold to appreciate the life-giving acts of blood donors in Ghana and across the world.
Every year, we join the rest of the world to celebrate World Blood Donor Day (WBDD) aimed at raising global awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products for transfusion and the critical contribution voluntary, unpaid blood donors make to national health systems.
The annual WBDD is organised under the auspices of the Ministry of Health and supported by World Health Organization and other corporate sponsors. Commemorative activities include community sensitization and media advocacy on voluntary blood donation.

In November of every year, we also celebrate National Blood Donor Day (NBDD) under the patronage of the Rotary Clubs of Accra and Accra Ridge to celebrate our incredible donor milestones of blood donors and other stakeholders for their contributions and commitment to the availability of safe blood in Ghana.
National awards are presented to deserving blood donors and organisations who had supported voluntary blood donation during the year.
The NBDD is celebrated in November every year and it also coincides with the launch of the annual blood collection programme for the ensuing year.
