The donation of blood is an essential act that makes it possible to save lives in our country every day. And the donations are particularly necessary because blood cannot be created artificially. To give blood is not just a citizen's altruistic gesture, it is also a question of common sense, since each one of us might one day need blood.
According to the statistics of the Blood Transfusion Centre of the Luxembourg Red Cross, our country presently has 13,500 donors. From these donors, 27,300 donations of blood, plasma, cells and autotransfusions were taken in 2005 to meet the transfusion needs of patients in all hospitals in the country. The Luxembourg Red Cross is always looking for people who can give blood regularly.
If you want to step forward and become a donor, or if you want to obtain more information, please contact the Blood Transfusion Centre of the Luxembourg Red Cross by telephone at 45 05 05-1
Your blood can save lives: think about it!
