Who can donate blood 

Any healthy person age 18 or older, who meets the Blood Center's donor screening requirements, may donate blood. A signed Blood Center permission slip is required for donors ages 16 and 17, and all donors must weigh at least 110 pounds.

Blood donations are needed to meet the requirements of blood transfusion for the thalassaemia patients in particular and for general patients at time of any disaster at particular.

The entire donation procedure takes about one hour, including registration, medical and social history screening and blood collection. There is no risk of being exposed to any infectious disease from the donation procedure, as only sterile supplies are used.

Anyone who is in good health, is at least 18 years old (persons 16 or 17 years old may donate), and weighs at least 110 pounds may donate blood every 56 days.
