SCAL Blood Donation Drive 2019

 

In collaboration with the Singapore Red Cross, SCAL will be organising its Blood Donation Drive on Friday, 10 May 2019 from 11:00am to 5:00pm at the SCAL Multi-Purpose Hall (Construction House, 1 Bukit Merah Lane 2 Singapore. 159760).

 

Blood is needed to save lives in times of emergencies and to sustain the lives of those with medical conditions like leukaemia, thalassaemia and bleeding disorders.

With an ageing population, more advanced life-saving medical procedures, and new hospitals being established, more blood will be needed every year. One unit of blood collected can help save up to three lives!

For many patients, blood donors are their lifeline. SCAL is appealing to healthy individuals to come forward to donate blood, and give the gift of life for our upcoming Blood Donation Drive.

The following are the basic criteria for blood donors:

  •        Between 16 and 60 years old (youths aged 16 and 17 are required to submit a signed parental consent form)
  •        Weigh at least 45kg
  •        Have a haemoglobin level of at least 12.5g/dl
  •        Generally in good health
  •        Females should not donate blood during pregnancy
  •        No symptoms of infection for at least one week (e.g sore throat, cough, flu, diarrhoea)
  •        No fever in the last three weeks
  •        Have not travelled to any malaria endemic area for the last four months
