Trauma Care International Foundation is an award winning registered non-governmental organization focused on improving trauma care and emergency response services through advocacy, health education, and community-based projects.
Every time I donate blood, I save at least three(3) lives. I know that someone somewhere needs me.
It was a typical afternoon when a student crossing the road on his way back from school was knocked down by a run-away bike. The scene was chaotic as concerned onlookers rushed to help but don’t have a clue on what to do.
As a trained First Responder with the Trauma Care International Foundation, I quickly assessed the student condition and sprang into action, thereby creating space for ventilation, I calm him down and administer first aid by arresting the bleeding area before taking him to the health Care Center for further check.
On another occasion I saw a man writhing with agony as a massive iron fell on his leg, time seemed to be a standstill for him. I carefully stabilized the injured man, ensuring that he remained as still as possible to prevent further harm. As I call for emergency medical assistance, I focused on keeping him conscious and calm providing reassurance.

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.

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
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.

Advocacy, training of first responders, volunteering, sponsorship of kits etc, there are so many ways you can help.
