Improving Health and Saving Lives
The World Mission Society Church of God hosts blood drives around the world to help people in danger of losing their lives due to blood shortages. Local government officials and community members also join the Church of God to donate blood. Their united efforts help relieve blood banks, hospitals, and patients in need of blood transfusions.
The simple act of donating blood can have a profound meaning for those who really need it. A single pint of blood collected per donor can save up to three lives. Through this selfless act of donating blood, we practice sharing love with others.
The Church of God held the Unity in the Community Blood Drive to spread awareness of the importance of donating blood.
The historic Mega Blood Drive 2014 brought seven tri-state area blood centers together for the first time, as 1,300 donors gave blood to meet the goal of saving 3,000 lives.
The Mega Blood Drive 2015 at NYU’s Kimmel Center produced outstanding results, collecting more than 1,400 pints of blood to alleviate seasonal blood shortages in New York City.
