Famous Nepalese-American Blood Donor Arjun Mainali Honored in New York

Oyster Bay Proclaims December 22 As “World Blood Donor Arjun Mainali Day”

By Manoj Rijal, NEW YORK: Hard work pays. And so will the blood work. World famous blood donor Arjun Mainali, who has donated his blood for 172 times – yes, for one hundred and seventy-two times – is all set to get a whole day declared in his name.
The Oyster Bay Town in Long Island, New York has proclaimed that December 22 be known as the “World Blood Donor Arjun Mainali Day” and that this honor well reflects the tremendous service this Nepalese-American social worker has provided for the welfare of the society.

“Arjun Mainali has put tireless efforts into educating, advocating, encouraging, promoting and creating awareness among thousands of people about the importance of blood donations,” read the certificate of honor handed over to Mainali amid a ceremony in the town.
“His incredible work has resulted in thousands of people donating blood, which is a positive proof of his leadership skills, humanitarian service and his vast social contribution. Now, therefore, we, the Oyster Bay Town Board, do hereby proclaim Sunday, December 22, 2019 to be: World Blood Donor Arjun Mainali Day,” said the certificate of honor.

Talking to Nepal24Hours.com, Mainali said the recognition is important from an awareness raising perspective, as the declaration would help people become more conscious and educated about the responsibility of donating blood and saving lives.
“I will keep doing my work regardless of whether I get awarded or not. I feel honored with the initiatives of the Oyster Bay Town, though,” Mainali said.
It’s been more 32 years since 1987 that Mainali has been rigorously donating blood. So far, he has travelled to 17 countries in Africa, Asia and Europe and 14 states within the United States of America just to donate blood and be the savior of hundreds of critical lives.
“The satisfaction we get from the blood donation work is immense. It’s a noble cause and I will continue encouraging people to be a blood donor and be of some help to the needy ones,” Mainali said.
