Voluntary Blood Donation Drive

August 24 @ 8:00 am - 7:00 pm

Did you know?
☆ Just 1 donation can save up to 3 lives
☆ Only about 1% of the entire Indian population donates their blood
☆ Dr. Karl Landsteiner first identified the major human blood groups – A, B, AB and O – in 1901.
☆ Blood or plasma from people who have been paid for it cannot be used for human transfusion.
☆ Someone needs blood every two seconds.

There are no substitutes for blood, platelets or plasma—they cannot be manufactured. Patients needing blood must rely on donations from people like YOU.
Those hesitant about donating blood for the first time often find that the donation process is easy and that saving lives is deeply gratifying. You never know if someone you know might need blood in the future, and with a short supply already, who knows if they’ll receive the required amount?
To reduce this frantic search for blood in times of crisis, we should all step up and donate our blood. So please, join us in our blood donation drive. I’ll be there, will you?
