This year’s Liquid Love project, SSSIO Australia’s annual blood, plasma and platelet donation drive, has had to overcome the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic in order to ensure that the initiative continues to build on a strong track record of success over the past few years. The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that people have not being able to go to donation centres in groups, and so individuals have had to go on their own to the donation centres and maintain social distancing to take part in this valuable service activity. Although the the pandemic created a number of hurdles, the need for blood, plasma and platelet donation is as strong as ever making the Liquid Love project all the more important.
Despite the challenges, the Liquid Love project is progressing strongly this year with many members coming forward to participate in this service activity. To commemorate 2020 being the 95th Birthday of Swami, this year’s Liquid Love project has set the target of having 950 members donate blood, plasma or platelets as part of the program. The number of donations from the all the regions across the country has been strong as can be seen in the below chart.
Blood donations are a life-saving activity which requires only a little time, yet the outcomes can be beneficial to many in critical need so we encourage you to get behind and support this wonderful activity.
