Blood is used frequently to treat:
  • ·      Patients with severe anaemia
  • ·      Accident victims
  • ·      Patients undergoing surgical procedures
  • ·      Transplant suffering patients
  • ·      Patients with cancer

There is constant need of a regular blood supply because it can be stored only during a limited time before it’s used.
Blood is the more precious gift that a person can offer to others.  The decision to donate blood can save the life a person or several even.

  1.   Donate blood is a non-profit and voluntary action;

  3.   Blood can save lives and somebody is waiting for it;

  4.   Why are you not a donor?
