As we all battle COVID-19, it is difficult to balance blood collection and supply, and there are blood shortages for clinical blood use in various places. Last Thursday, Guangzhou United Family Hospital and Guangzhou Blood Center launched a blood donation campaign to relieve the pressure of blood banks and build a bridge of hope for life.
During the three-hour blood donation campaign at United Family Hospital in Guangzhou, 79 “hot-blooded youths” rolled up their sleeves and donated 19,700ml of blood. The precious blood was collected by Guangzhou Blood Center and then transferred to medical institutions in need, all in a timely manner.
Donate blood safely to ensure our safety
From the beginning of registration, the quota of blood donation in different periods will be separated, and the blood donors will come in order according to the registration period. Single-lane channels and one-meter yellow lines will be set up on site to avoid crowding.
Two senior nurses from Guangzhou United Family Hospital also joined our volunteer team to undertake blood pressure monitoring and emergency rescue work, to ensure the safety of all our generous blood donors.
Bilingual service was praised by foreign guests
