FAQs
******************************************************************************************************
§  Will donating blood make me weak?
 
No, it will not make you weak, donating 450cc will not cause any ill effects or weakness. The human body has the capacity to compensate with the new fluid volume. Further, the bone marrow is stimulated to produce new blood cells which in turn makes the blood forming organs function more effectively.
******************************************************************************************************
§  How often can a person donate?
 
A healthy individual may donate every three months
******************************************************************************************************
§  How long will it take to donate blood?
 
The whole process of donating blood from the registration up to the time you rest will only take an average of 30 minutes
The blood extraction will take about 5-8 minutes and the volume will be replenished within 24 hours then the cells within weeks. Essentially, by the end of the month, the body will have the same amount of blood before the blood donation.
******************************************************************************************************
§  Will I contract disease through blood donation?
 
No, we use sterile, disposable needles and syringes
******************************************************************************************************
§  Can a person who has tattoo still donate blood?
 
If the tattooing procedure is done a year ago, he/she may donate. This is also the same with ear piercing, acupuncture and other procedures involving needles.
******************************************************************************************************
P.S- A humble request to all donors to be punctual, responsible and considerate when you commit to bleed for a patient, understanding the emergencies involved in coordinating the blood donation drives. Last minute drop outs for these events are not easy to tackle with in life threatening situations or when surgeries are fixed after the confirmation of donors.
