By Abdur Roqeeb Yaqub

The Lagos State Ahmadi Muslim Youth(Majlis Khuddamul-Ahmadiyya) has commemorated International Youth Day 2021 With Lagos State Blood Transfusion Service on 12th Aug 2021.

Globally, Youth Day is celebrated every 12 August of the year.

The theme of International Youth Day 2021 is, “Transforming Food Systems: Youth Innovation for Human and Planetary Health”, intending to highlight that the success of such a global effort will not be achieved without the meaningful participation of young people.

A brief lecture was given on the topic; The Role of Nutrition in Blood Donation By Dietician Modupe Titilayo, she advised about nutrition and good foods for the body and when to take them. Also, she categorized the nutrition into 3 types ( Iron, pholic acid and vitamin c ) while stating the sub-types and food and nutrient we have under them. This was followed by Questions and answers.

The Majlis Khuddamul-Ahmadiyya Lagos joined the Lagos State Blood Transfusion Service to commemorate the event. An avenue to gather the youths in Lagos State to mingle, discuss the need for them to be the focus, be prepared for the challenges lying ahead and to educate them on the need to donate blood to save lives.

The Executive Secretary of Lagos Dr Bodurin Osikomaiya gave a goodwill message to the youth. She addressed the attendees at the LSBTS Donor Center, Gbagada on the need to stay fit in protecting our environment on what we eat and how we manage the environmental pollution which has multiplying effects on our existence and healthy living. She mentioned the importance of donating blood in saving lives, the benefits therein to both the donors and the receivers while registering that, Lagos State needs more blood donors as the state is just at 50% of matching the need for blood.

The Majlis Khuddamul-Ahmadiyya Lagos State was represented by its President (Qaid) Bro Roqib Akinyemi with him was Additional General Secretary MKA-Lagos (Naib Mutamad) Bro Abdur Roqeeb Yaqub.

The youth leader (Qaid) spoke about the theme of the International Youth Day as he noted that it is vital that the global community recognises that human and planetary health are two sides of the one climate coin and that together they present a critical road for mitigation.

According to the Lancet journal, the Global Burden of Disease Study ranked the top causes of global disability and deaths, it was no surprise to many of us that diet-related, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) topped the list. Simultaneously, as the world looks to curb and reduce climate emissions and protect major freshwater, land, and ocean resources, our food systems are now responsible for an estimated 32% of global emissions—more than from all land, sea, and air transport combined. Qaid mentioned.

He then encouraged the youths present to leverage technology and the youth organizations they belong to, to mobilize and advocate for blood donation and also engage in some other voluntary service to serve humanity.
