On World Blood Donor Day

The Ethiopian Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ESOG) joins the world as it observes the World Blood Donor Day today June 14, 2017. ESOG recognizes how significant public blood donations have been to save mothers’ and children’s life. We also recognize the shortage of blood to be able to save every mother and every child during delivery and beyond. Taking this opportunity we would like to encourage our staff, our members and the general public to donate blood at any time of convenience. Give Blood; Give Now; Give Often!
