Blood donation

Blood donation

How does it work?

To be a blood donor, you need to be at least 18 years old.
First, you need to answer some questions to make sure the donor's blood is acceptable.
Then, a needle is inserted into the arm to start drawing blood.

The donor needs to open and close their hand to help the blood flow.
Half a liter of blood is donated, and it takes about 10 minutes.
After donating blood, it's important to eat and drink something to replenish energy.

What is it used to?

Donating blood serves many purposes. For instance, it's used in some surgeries, or it's given to patients who need blood due to illness or accidents.
Also, a blood test is performed, and the donor is informed in case there are any problems.

And remember, always ask your doctor!
