Why should I donate blood?
The humanity is in constant need for blood. One out of ten patients admitted in hospital needs blood transfusion. Blood is in constant demand for the treatment of patients suffering from malaria, anaemia, cancer or haemophilia. Many surgical operations require the availability of blood in advance. Blood may be needed during or after childbirth or for an exchange transfusion in newborn babies.
Blood donation is never ending need. It saves lives. Every blood donation counts as it gives the recipient a new chance to survive.
