Why donate a blood? Blood donation helps save lives.

The need for blood is great. On any given day, more than two thousand of blood units are transfused to patients in our country. Some may need blood during surgery, while others depend on it after an accident or
because they have a disease that requires blood components.

Preparations before donating blood:

1. Have enough rest and sleep.
2. No alcohol intake 24 hours prior to blood donation.
3. No medications for at least 24 hours prior to blood donation.
4. Have something to eat prior to blood donation, avoid fatty food.
5. Drink plenty of fluid, like water or juice.
