Give Blood - Save Lives

Blood is vital and irreplaceable: Blood can only be formed by the body itself. It consists of many cells and molecules, each of which has a specific function - for example, the transport of oxygen and nutrients, the defense against pathogens, hemostasis or heat transport within the body.

The need is high. In particular, blood reserves are needed as quickly as possible after accidents, and the lives of those affected often depend on them. Children also often need blood: after accidents or to treat cancer. That is why it is so important that healthy people donate blood.

Everyone can be dependent on a blood transfusion, including you, your nearest relatives or acquaintances. Blood donors are special people: Your solidarity is given life!

We look forward to welcoming you!
