Blood donor is a noble gesture representing the kindness and love among people. This noble action may also help to share the pain with patients and enhance the spirit of solidarity, love and support in the community.
WHO estimates that the current demand for blood in Vietnam is about 1.6 million units per year. Despite the increasing amount of donating blood annually, this cannot meet such need. And this also threatens the lives of patients who require blood transfusion every day. Therefore, it is necessary to call for the involvement of people in this activity to save such people’s lives.
Voluntary blood donation will be performed following doctor’s instructions. This process will not affect your health because blood donation stimulates hematopoietic organs and make the hematopoesis 8 to 10 times faster than normal and your body will recover quickly. In addition, donating blood also gives donors the opportunity to perform health check-up. You will be offered blood test and blood test results will present the key information of your health status as well as underlying diseases. Therefore, do not hesitate to participate in blood donation since a drop of your blood may save the life of other patient. For you, it’s just a few moments of your day, but for patients, it is life saver.
