All that saves one soul
As if he had saved a whole world

The Association of Volunteer Blood Donors in Israel was founded in Tel Aviv in 1936 during the bloodshed, when the people of Tel Aviv felt the need to create a pool of volunteers willing to donate blood at any time to the wounded, who were urged from all over the country to the only Jewish hospital in the area. Today the organization has over 11,000 members.
The Association of Volunteer Blood Donors in Israel works alongside MDA's blood services, which collect about 270,000 units of blood from volunteer donors each year, who do so without any real consideration (approximately 1,000 units of blood each day). Over the years, the association has donated a lot and assists in every issue of blood donations in Israel.

MDA and the Blood Donor Organization are asking coroners to come and donate plasma to be given to critically ill patients in Corona.

Why do blood donations continue throughout the year?

In fact, it was possible to recruit "in operation" a lot of people and an area full of blood that would suffice for a long time.

Right? Not true!

Platelets have three components: red blood cells that can be stored up to 35 days, platelets that can store 5 days and plasma that can be frozen for up to a year and a half so there is no need for many donors at once but blood donations throughout the year.

How much and why?

In order to meet the growing demands of the health system in Israel, 1000 doses of blood must be collected every day.

Blood donations in Israel are carried out by MDA's blood services, in order to provide all hospitals in the country with all the blood components needed to treat the sick and injured, routinely and in emergencies.

It is not yet possible to produce blood in the laboratory, so blood has no substitute, So that only a blood donation from one person can save another.

Why is it important to donate blood voluntarily?

To increase the safety and quality of the blood packings, it is very important that the blood donation be given voluntarily, and without any financial rewards. Volunteer donors provide reliable information about their lifestyle habits and medical issues that may be harmful to patients receiving the dose of infusion. It is important to know that there is complete confidentiality about the information you provide, as well as the results of the tests that will be performed in the dose.

So where to contribute?
