Who looks like a blood donor?

Making of the World Blood Donor Day 2016 video. March 2016

For the preparations of the World Blood Donor Day, 14 June 2016, WHO is working with Sanquin, the national blood supply organization from the Netherlands. As a global campaign, some streets of Lisbon, Portugal, were transformed into scenes from around the world celebrating the value of blood donation and emphasizing the concept of the 2016 campaign theme "Blood connects us all". These are photos from the video scenes highlighting stories of people whose lives have been saved through blood donation, to motivate regular blood donors to continue giving blood.
