Blood is a precious and scarce resource. A single unit of blood can save 3 lives. Hospitals always fall short of this crucial asset especially during pandemic situations like COVID 19. By donating blood you not only save lives, but it also helps you in many ways like reduction of weight and improve fitness in healthy adults, Prevents hemochromatosis, Reduce heart disease risk, Enhance new blood cell production, Lower cancer risk, etc.
