Donate is to save

Maybe you are one of those people who do not want to donate blood in public health care centers because you are afraid of needles, the smell of sterile material revolts in your stomachs or is based on the criterion that your family is in good health and that is what is important .

 

In life you never know what fate holds and it may be the case that someone needs your blood. Then the blame and the comments fall on the hospital centers because they do not have a specific blood type of which you may be a carrier.

 

According to the Prosalud website, "every year in the world, blood transfusions and blood products contribute to saving millions of people, increase the hope and quality of life of patients with life-threatening diseases and support complex medical and surgical procedures."

 

To donate is to save; it is a voluntary, altruistic and human gesture that gives back life to many people.

 

So why not extend your hand and be supportive of those who may need you? Today life gives you the opportunity to help them. One day you can be the one in need.

 

Do not deny yourself, and if you are from the County City of Jaruco go to the Comprehensive Teaching Polyclinic Noelio Capote to help with your blood to an unknown person that today depends on you, tomorrow you could be in your place.
