Safe blood saves lives. Blood is the most precious gift that anyone can give to another person – the gift of life. A decision to donate blood can save a life, or even several if the blood is separated into its components – red cells, platelets, and plasma. Every pint of your blood can save the life of upto 3 people, improve their lives, and enhances social solidarity. It sends a powerful message of mutual aid and brings about a societal commitment. For healthy adults, blood donation is not only safe, but also provides a sense of belonging and pride.
