Donation is an act of solidarity and altruism, which the world needs now more than ever in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Volunteers blood donors have once again demonstrated their love for others by donating convalescent plasma to help people who have been suffering from coronavirus disease to recover.

The date commemorates the National Blood Donor Day, a propitious moment to thank all the people who regularly come to the Blood Bank of the High Complexity Hospital “President Juan Domingo Perón” to make their donation.

In this regard, the institution has taken all biosecurity measures to ensure that donations continue safely for donors, recipients and health staff.

En este sentido la institución ha tomado todas las medidas de bioseguridad para garantizar que las donaciones continúen de manera segura para los donantes, receptores y personal de salud.

National Blood Donor Day is a call to action to promote blood donation as a regular, voluntary, supportive practice and to encourage healthy lifestyle among regular donors. The aim is to increase the number of blood donations by motivating those who have already donated to become regular blood donors and raising awareness of the benefits of this altruistic act of “giving life”.

Blood is a vital and irreplaceable resource. An adequate supply can only be ensured through regular donations by voluntary, unpaid blood donors. Those interested in performing this act must meet the following requirements: Be over 18 years of age, weigh more than 50 kilos, have an ID card, be in good health, and drink plenty of liquids such as infusions (non-dairy products), natural juices and/or soft drinks before the blood donation.

Blood cannot be manufactured, it cannot be bought or sold. Our organism is the only one capable of producing it and our heart is the only one capable of offering it. Thanks to all our blood donors.
