Data Link private – our colleagues are regular, voluntary blood donors
We are proud to point out the selflessness of our colleagues Davor and Sinisa, who are regular, voluntary blood donors. They donated blood more than 40 times during period of 10 years which means that they saved lives of many people.
Who is a voluntary blood donor?
A voluntary, unpaid blood donor is any healthy person who donates blood, plasma or other blood components voluntarily and is not paid for it either in money or in any other form that could be substituted for money. Donating blood is a privilege of healthy people because only a healthy person can be a blood donor.
Injuries and diseases threaten human life. Blood is often an irreplaceable medicine. We are all potential recipients of blood every day. The only source of blood is a person - a voluntary blood donor.
The first step in voluntary blood donation begins with the decision that you want to help those in need by donating the most valuable thing you can - blood and thus saving people's lives.
Any healthy person can donate blood:
- ages 18 to 65 (up to 70 in cases of good health)
- body weight over 55 kilograms - proportional to height
- body temperature up to 37 degrees
- with a doctor's approval
