Every day, about 800 women death cases are registered and each of them is a result of problems connected with pregnancy or childbirth-related complications. The process of child delivery is strictly connected with severe bleeding both during delivery and after childbirth. Bleeding complications are often the cause of higher morbidity, long-term disability and even mortality. The risk and frequency of maternal deaths varies among countries and even continents, however, almost all of them are observed in developing countries. More than a half of such cases are observed in Africa on areas localized nearby Saharan while southern Asia countries note one third of these deaths. Another important factor is the age of a mother – adolescent girls under age of 15 represent a group that high risk of mortality affects most frequently.

Hence WHO has developed a project – World Blood Donor Day. WBDD campaign focuses on raising the awareness on the safety of blood and blood products with simultaneous emphasizing of blood donation importance. Additionally, the objective is to promote blood transfusion in order to recognize it as a 'gift of life'. Although blood transfusion is still a challenge in many countries, according to WHO reports over 108 million blood donations are given every year. Moreover, WHO plans that until year 2020, the amount of blood supplies from voluntary unpaid donors will cover 100% need for all counties in Earth.

Since year 2004, on the basis of achievements and quality of the Transfusion Service the World Health Organization (WHO) selects a host country for World Blood Donor Day (WBDD). Up till now WBDD has been held in Australia (2009), Argentina (2011), Canada (2007), Dubai (2008), France (2013), South Africa (2004), South Korea (2012), Spain (2010), Thailand (2006) and United Kingdom (2005). This year, 2014, for the first time a representative country of South Asia has been selected. The eleventh edition of World Blood Donor Day global campaign will take place at 14th June in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

 

The World Health Organization WHO is an agency of United Nations that concerns international human health and medicine. The organization was established in year 1948 and its headquarter is in Geneva, Switzerland. Its main responsibility is medical assistance.

My name is Jessica Luis, and I base in USA...My life is back!!! After 1 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids . I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr Mohammed, which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr Mohammed's e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before Dr Mohammed, is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man...

'After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there.
