Blood Donation in the Pro-Blood Foundation in Sao Paulo. Blood donations arrive to fall by 30% in the year-end

With the slogan Do not give holiday to blood donation, the Ministry of Health of São Paulo started shooting about 15 million statewide torpedoes to summon them to donate blood during the holidays. The messages will be routed through early January for customers of Claro.

Besides encouraging blood donation, the message also indicates the Secretariat website, where you can see the address of more than 100 collection sites around the state (www.saude.sp.gov.br / doesangue) and time of operating units, including the New Year's holiday weekend. The torpedoes will also inform the Secretariat of the address of the page on Facebook (www.facebook.com / spsaude).

On average, this time of year, blood donations arrive to fall by 30% in the state.

The goal of the initiative is to ensure inventories in hospitals in an era in which there is usually an increase in the number of accidents and, therefore, a large volume of emergency room visits and surgeries requiring blood transfusions.

To donate blood just take between 16 and 67 years old, be in good health, being powered, weigh more than 50 kg and carry original identity document with a photograph. It is recommended to avoid fatty foods at four hours prior to the donation and in the case of alcoholic beverages, 12 hours. If the person is cold or flu should not donate temporarily.

"Blood donation is vital year round. However, this holiday season and New Year, this act of solidarity becomes even more necessary to avoid the reduction of inventories in this period and also early next year," says Osvaldo Donini, Hemorrede coordinator of the Secretariat.
