While you're reading this, someone in India needs blood…
Someone has to give blood for someone to receive blood…
- Approximately only 4% of the eligible population in India donates blood.
- Hospitals predict that the need for blood will increase 5% each year.
- 75% of donors donate only ONCE per year.
If they donated just two times per year there would never be any shortages.
Blood can only come from a volunteer donor, a person like you who makes the choice to donate. There is no substitute for your donation. When you make a blood donation, you join a very select group, currently only 0.8 out of every 100 people in India donate blood.
