We are immensely grateful to all our Associates, donors and especially South Sabha, Mahila Mandal and TPF South Kolkata for their support. Our aim is not only to collect blood through blood donation but also to build a data-bank on e-blood cells and dedicate it to the country so that in future emergency situations, the blood donors can be reconnected and the blood requirements can be fully met. Blood donation is a donation of life to those in need.”
There is a huge shortage of voluntary blood donation due to the fear of pandemic Covid-19 which has affected the world with its brutal grip for the last few years. It is common to see shortage of blood in blood-banks. There is no alternate to blood. India has a population of over 135 crores with approximately 52 crores of healthy people and eligible blood donors. If they voluntarily donate blood, there will never be a shortage of blood in the country’s blood banks. According to blood donation rules in India, any healthy person between the age of 18 to 65 years can donate blood voluntarily every three months. The process of new blood formation is continuous in the bone marrow of every human body, i.e., old blood cells make room for new blood after completing their lifespan of approximately 120 days. Approximately 5 to 6 litres of blood is always flowing through the veins in our body.
