My name is Osahor and I signed up as a voluntary blood donor with Trauma Care International Foundation. I donated my blood for the greater good and I am changing lives because I know that every life is important.
I'm doing this to ensure that when someone needs blood, they get blood.
We are causing a change

I chose to donate blood because blood donation saves lives and blood donors are superheroes. They save lives. There are people who actually need this blood like pregnant women, road traffic accident victims, sickle cell patients. I’m calling people out there to come and be part of the exercise. It’s free, it’s harmless. It is not painful. You help in saving other people’s lives. You help in impacting other people’s lives. Blood donation is something that makes one happy because when you know that your blood is being used to save other people’s lives, it goes a long way. Thank you very much. I’m grateful.

My reason for donating blood today is to save lives. One unit of blood donated can up to three lives. I encourage everyone out there that is yet to donate blood to please donate and let’s save lives together. Thank you Trauma Care International Foundation for this opportunity to save lives.
I'm a member of the scout association of Nigeria, as a scout, we are taught on how to provide first aid but what I have learnt here today from Trauma Care is more advanced. Now, I know why we do CPR and what it does to help the victim's heart despite the fact they are not breathing by themselves. I am fully equipped with the knowledge to help many more victims. Thank you Trauma Care
I am Engineer Babatunde Oyetayo, the National Scouts Coordinator. I once came in contact with a terrible accident scene and to the best of my knowledge then helped the victims. But now I can identify the little first aid mistakes here and there I made then. I stand corrected and will use this new skill received on Heartsaver First Aid/CPR AED training with Trauma Care. I must commend the NGO on her First Responder Network Project. It shows their passion to get as many people saved as possible. Our Government alone cannot do everything. Other private organizations can adopt such lifesaving projects to save many more. Our scouts are definitely better first responders because of this. And we will use this skill set to save as many as we come in contact with needing first aid.
