There are many reasons to donate blood, the list goes on and on. Giving blood is a generous gift, a gift of life. Deciding to donate blood can help save a life or many lives for that matter as your blood is separated into different categories: red cells, platelets and plasma. These three can be used individually for patients with specific conditions and requirements.
Blood transfusion is needed for multiple things such as:
-Women with problems during pregnancy;
-Children with severe anaemia;
-People with severe trauma such as man-made disasters;
-Complex medical and surgical procedures and cancer patients.
All this information was collected from the World Health Organisation, for information follow up here .
