World Marrow Donor Day 2023

This year’s WMDD took place on Saturday, 16 September 2023. The overall theme of our day was to thank donors worldwide that have stepped up to selflessly help patients in need of a stem cell transplant.
We encouraged everyone to organize amazing events that bring exposure to WMDD, inspiring more individuals to register as donors and help save the lives of patients in need of stem cell transplants. By raising awareness about stem cell donation and how to contribute to our common goal, we aimed to make a significant impact. Whether asking people to spread the word or to make a financial donation, all these efforts can help patients worldwide.

As a specific theme we used the slogan :́Global Donor Drive ́. Anyone could participate by sending us a short video, which we aired on 15, 16 and 17 September to cover all time zones.

Find the short introduction video and the full compilation below to get a good impression of all the videos that were submitted.

Winners of our yearly awards will be revealed in Cape Town during the IDRC and WMDA Meetings on Friday, 28 June 2024.
