Life Of A Volunteer,
As a young adult, who grew up in and out of the hospitals, seeing all kinds of doctors, treating me for different ailments, informed my decision to never take things for granted and to be grateful for life and good health. My mum told me about my pregnancy, how difficult it was for her and she almost died,of course she needed blood at some point. I am happy I can donate today because I don't know who might be needing it. I had to tell my elder sister to call my mum that she needs me to help her with something and off I ran to donate blood. I am sorry, but my mum might not allow me, her reasons: I faint a lot and I am not strong enough.
Thank God, I was certified healthy to be a donor. I went from the little girl with crisis, to a young adult who can donate blood without fear. This is progress for me. I am so excited to do this and I will do it over and over again.
I will keep on doing the little I can, no matter how small, so the world can be a better place. Yes, I am glad I donated today and I am saving a life.
This to me gives me the utmost joy.
Kindness is beautiful, empathy and compassion is the only language I speak.
My name is OJO-OBA OLUWABUSOLAMI RAFIAT, AND I AM A PROUD VOLUNTEER WITH A DIFFERENCE.
