Who is concerned by blood donation?

Blood donation is a generous act that saves lives. Through our awareness campaigns, we want to encourage those who have not yet donated to do so and those who donate occasionally to do so more regularly.

How do I give blood?

You will initially be given a questionnaire to fill out with relevant information. This is followed by a consultation with a doctor
that is usually by appointment. The actual blood donation process takes around ten minutes, and a selection of snacks are available afterwards to donors.

How will my donation be used?

It will be used to treat major haemorrhages (accidents, surgery or childbirth), leukaemia, burn victims, and to support people undergoing chemotherapy or suffering from severe immune diseases.
