Blood is an essential, vital and very valuable part to the human body, a wealth that each of us have, without recognizing how important it is. And that up to a point, when a dear person needs blood to be saved - only then we realize the true value of the gesture to donate blood.
Romania is the last place in Europe in terms of blood donation. Statistics show that only 1.7% of Romanians are on the list of donors, compared to other European countries: Denmark - 10%, England - 9%; Netherlands - 8%, Germany - 5.5%, France - 6%; South Italy - 4% Northern Italy - 3%, Hungary - 4.2%.
"Every second there is a man who needs blood and I consider that each of us must take responsibility for blood donation, because as long as we are healthy and can donate, we should do it. And that is not for the benefits which they grant a blood donor, but because we are fortunate, because we can enjoy every moment of our lives while other people are losing their lives because not suffering from any serious illness, but because they do not have the right blood to the right time.
Besides the fact that there are very few blood donors in our country, Romania still has a problem, the technological endowment of specialized Centers, which increases the negative impact that it has insufficient blood because it alters much faster than would happen if the Centers would be equipped accordingly.
Medicine has evolved greatly over time, and although now there are special technologies for the storage and transportation of blood, this remains a very perishable substance and therefore donations need to be made daily. Also, do not overlook the fact that a person who donates blood every three months can save in a year 15 people." said Catalin Paunescu, Star Storage CEO.
Star Storage during the year had two internal blood donation campaigns titled "Blood Donor Day in Star Storage" and which were held in collaboration with the Blood Transfusion Center Bucharest. During these campaigns, Star Storage employees donated blood, being helped in this endeavor by Blood Transfusion Center Bucharest which has provided a mobile unit.
