Blood donation

Blood is needed to save lives in times of emergencies and to sustain the lives of those with medical conditions, like leukemia, thalassaemia and bleeding disorders, as well as patients who are undergoing major surgeries.

Every hour of the day, 15 units of blood are used in Singapore. We need to collect about 400 units of blood daily to meet the blood needs of patients in Singapore. 

Make an appointment to donate blood today.
