Donate your blood,
it’s a life-saving
But what is blood?
Blood is made up of several elements. For blood transfusion, we are particularly interested in red blood cells, platelets and plasma.
Red blood cells are the most numerous cells in the blood. Their main role is to transport oxygen from the lungs to the tissues of our body and to bring the carbon dioxide produced by the cells back to the lungs for elimination.
Blood plasma carries other blood cells, nutrients, hormones and many other components that are particularly important for the proper functioning of our body.
Platelets are mainly used to prevent bleeding: they are involved in blood clotting. When a blood vessel is damaged, they form and take care of stopping the bleeding.
How does the donation run?
During a blood donation, you will be warmly welcomed before going through simple and secure steps, allowing your precious contribution that saves lives.
