Why should I donate blood
Approximately every 15 minutes of every day, someone in Mauritius needs blood (Calculated on the fact that about 125 -150 pints of blood are needed everyday).  While some 2 to 2.5% of Mauritians give blood, the demand for blood  and blood products has increased considerably for many reasons:
  • Surgery or for medical treatment.
  • Thalassemia patients (a Genetic Blood Disorder)•Cancer and Leukemia  patients (Blood Cancer)
  • Accident victims
  • New born babies and mothers undergoing Ceasarian
  • Renal Dialysis patients
  • Patients who are Anemia
The good news is that one blood donation - in just one hour - can save up to three lives
