Donate Blood

Donating blood is a simple thing to do, but it can make a big difference in the lives of others. Actual donation time of 5-10 minutes. Allow 45 to 60 minutes for registration, health interview, donation and refreshments.

The steps in the process are :

Before Donating Blood
Eat something substantial before your appointment.
Have plenty of liquid the day before donation, especially in warm weather. In the 3 hours before donating, have at least 2 to 3 glasses of water/juice.

Registration of Donor
Our volunteer/staff will ask you to fill a form with brief information on contact details and medical history.

Physical Health check-up
You will be examined by a doctor to answer some questions about your health history. Your blood pressure and hemoglobin level will be checked.

Blood Donation
We will cleanse an area on your arm and insert a brand new sterile needle for the blood draw. This feels like a quick pinch and is over in seconds.
The actual donation takes about 5-10 minutes, during which you will be seated comfortably.
When a unit of blood has been collected, the donation is complete.
A staff person will place a bandage on your arm

Safety -

All equipment is sterile; needles are used only once and then discarded. In the great majority of individuals, a donation of 350 ml is less than 10% of your total body volume and may be given safely every 3 months. Your body keeps on discarding and replenishing blood all the time whether you give blood or not, so this amount is quickly replenished.

After Donation

Relax & refresh - You can have something to eat and drink in and relax for about 15-20 minutes before departing. Within 24-48 hours your blood volume is completely restored.
Apart from enjoying our refreshments and souvenir, other things to help you recover quickly include:
Drink plenty of water, fruit juice etc. and avoid alcohol for 8 hours after you've given blood.
If you become unwell in any way after giving blood, speak to the doctor in-charge straight away.

Donate Blood Again
Blood donors can give blood again after 3 months.
