Blood Donation Form - W.H.Y. Foundation
--> Donating blood is a safe process. A sterile needle is used only once for each donor and then discarded.
--> The actual blood donation typically takes less than 10-12 minutes. The entire process, from the time you arrive to the
time you leave, takes about an hour and 15 min.
--> The average adult has about 10 units of blood in his body. Roughly 1 unit(300ml) is given during a donation.
--> All donated blood is tested for HIV, hepatitis B and C, syphilis and other infectious diseases before it can be transfused
--> In India blood donation is voluntary and unpaid, this is normal in developing countries as demanded by WHO.
Last Donation Date
Before Your Donation
--> Maintain a healthy iron level in your diet by eating iron rich foods, such as red meat, fish, poultry, beans, spinach, iron-
fortified cereals and raisins.
--> Drink an extra 16 oz. of water or nonalcoholic fluids before the donation.
--> Eat a healthy meal before your donation. Avoid fatty foods, such as fries or ice cream before donating.
(Fatty foods can affect the tests we do on your blood. If there is too much fat in your blood, your donation cannot be
tested for infectious diseases and the blood will not be used for transfusion.)
