We are honoured to be an official partner of NHS Blood and Transplant since July 2016 who operate across England and Wales.
We would like to thank everyone who has been involved and contributed to the IUS Imam Hussain Blood Donation Campaign over the years from donors to volunteers and supporters, every effort is greatly appreciated!
We have recently received the following letter from NHS Blood and Transplant:
On behalf of NHS Blood and Transplant I just wanted to thank you for making an invaluable contribution to helping to save and improve the lives of many patients.
We would like to acknowledge the Partnership with IUS, and to thank you for Imam Hussain Blood Donation Campaign. NHSBT appreciate all the years of dedication and hard work which you and your team have done to help save and improve lives.
From 2017 to 2021, you have provided venues to host 12 blood donation sessions in the London area which is phenomenal. Around 1213 donors have attended these blood donation sessions, resulting in 1023 donations being made. Each donation can potentially save up to three lives. It is possible that 3069 recipients have benefited from the IUS London blood sessions.
From those 1213 donors, 318 donors made their first donations at an IUS session. In addition to that, a further 48 new donors have registered as new blood donors.
NHS Blood and Transplant relies on the support of people in various communities to help us continue our live-saving work. We are grateful for the collaborative work that the IUS Imam Hussain Blood Donation partnership have done and continues to do.
