TUNISIA UNISIA on May 11, 2012 Dear SCOPHians from all over the world, world Family I am writing to invite you and your On behalff of The Tunisian Orange Family, NMO to join us for the Mega second edition of our Game “Ping--pong, A Game For Life”,, an international blood donation drive. Blood donations are an essential part of our healthcare systems. system If we did not have any volunteers giving blood, many of the medical procedures that we take for granted could not take place. Doctors and surgeons rely on blood donations to carry out a wide variety of life-saving life and life-enhancing enhancing treatments every day. Therefore, every year, every day, every second, more and more blood donors are needed. Thus, we, ass young public Health Leaders, recognize and support what Dr. Neelam Dhingra said as Coordinator of Blood Transfusion Safety at WHO: WHO “Young people are the hope and future of a safe blood supply in the world, We are confident more countries can achieve 100 per cent voluntary unpaid blood donation if they focus efforts on engaging young people”. That’s how we came to create this concept of Ping-pong whose first edition e th was Lunched in Tunisia by September, the 20 , 2011 (Please find nd here our article on THE Morning SCOPHian 2012 on page 12 ).

And now, on the occasion of the World Blood Donor Day WBDD 2012, we thought to extend this noble event, in its mega second edition by inviting all our SCOPH Family members to join. We welcome all the SCOPHs to be a part of this movement and encourage you in addition to the international level of the “competition” to consider running your own national blood donation drive as it is a simple concept that can profit many people. Should you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email us at SCOPHly Yours, Fatma HABBOUBI

Why? The objectives of this year’s campaign are to: • Creating a playfully involved SCOPHian plateform in celebrating the WBDD 2012 • Build wider public awareness of the need for regular blood donation throughout the year in order to maintain an adequate supply of blood for all patients requiring transfusion. • "Celebrating the gift of blood" in a creative and participative atmosphere • Thank and reinforce the self-esteem esteem of those who give blood so they continue to do so regularly; • Inspire those who do not give blood but bu are in good health to start donating blood; • Encourage blood service staff to recognize blood donors for their “heroic” act each and every time they donate blood; and • Persuade ministries of health to show their appreciation of blood donors and provide adequate resources to move towards 100% voluntary unpaid blood donation. All this in order to get closer to edge of the target set by WHO and which states that if at least 1% of the national population donates blood, it is sufficient to cover its basic needs needs for secure blood
