  • How to Donate

What to know


How often can a person donate?

A healthy individual may donate every three months.

Will donating blood make a person weak?

No, it will not make you weak. Donating 450cc will not cause any ill effects or weakness. The human body has the capacity to compensate with the new fluid volume. Further, the bone marrow is stimulated to produce new blood cells which in turn makes the blood forming organs function more effectively.

Can a person who has tattoo or body piercing still donate blood?

If the tattooing procedure or the piercing was done a year ago, he/she may donate. This is also applicable to acupuncture, and other procedures involving needles.

How long will it take to donate blood?

The whole process of blood donation, from the registration up to the recovery, will only take an average of 30 minutes.

The blood extraction will take about 5-10 minutes. The blood volume will start replenishing within 24 hours. Theoretically, by the end of the month, the body will have the blood status before the blood donation.

Will I contract disease through blood donation?

No, we use sterile, disposable needles and syringes.
