Dara Pharma organizes a solidarity blood donation
Dara Pharma has organized a solidarity blood donation at its facilities in Granollers today. A team from the Banc de Sang i Teixits came to Dara's headquarters to collect blood among the company’s workers, between 9 am and 1 pm. The first Dara’s blood donation was attended by 33 employees, 24 of whom could end up being donors - after the protocolary interview with the doctor. From these, there were 10 who were first time donors.
In fact, the collective blood donation proposal, was proposed by an employee through the suggestion box, which was implemented a year ago. The company, which currently has about 150 employees, does not ignore the idea to organize more solidarity blood donations in its facilities.
Despite the scientific and technological advances, blood cannot be manufactured. That is why voluntary and altruistic donation is still the only way to obtain all the necessary blood to attend all patients in Catalonia. In fact, it is estimated that between 800 and 1,000 blood donations are needed daily. Each blood donation benefits at least 3 people, during the processing of each bag, concentrates of red cells, platelets and blood plasma are obtained. All these blood components expire after few days, that is why it is necessary to donate on a regular basis. We can donate blood more than once a year. Women can donate 3 times, and men 4 a year.
