Blood Donation Camps

Rs.0.00 of Rs.8,000.00 Raised

A Blood Donation occurs when a person voluntarily has blood drawn and used for transfusions or made into medications by a process called fractionation. In the developed world, most blood donors are unpaid volunteers (voluntary non remunerated repeat donations, VNRD) who give blood for a community supply. In poorer countries, established supplies are limited and donors usually give blood when family or friends need a transfusion. Many donors donate as an act of charity, but some are paid and in some cases there are incentives other than money such as paid time off from work. Donors can also have blood drawn for their own future use. Donating is relatively safe, but some donors have bruising where the needle is inserted or may feel faint.

The amount of blood drawn and the methods vary. The collection can be done manually or with automated equipment that only takes specific portions of the blood. Most of the components of blood used for transfusions have a short shelf life, and maintaining a constant supply is a persistent problem.

The common but baseless belief among public is that blood donated is blood lost. MFCT creates awareness for blood donation including in rural areas and educating them that blood is God’s gift to mankind and by donating the same it is not lost but recoups in three months. It is the vital fluid for human existence and it requires to be made available immediately when needed. Recognizing the importance, MFCT organizes frequent Blood Donation Camps annually.
