Millions of people owe their lives to those who they have never seen. They are donors who give blood voluntarily without getting any payment. Every year in Turkey more than half a million people need a blood transfusion. Patients with serious illness are in need of the blood and its components. The most of these patients are children, women in postpartum period, people with injuries and many others.
The Blood Donor Day was arranged on the main square of Alanya. The city organizers have placed a medical tent where everyone could donate the blood. The governor and other officials of Alanya participated in the event.
An adult without danger to his life may lose about 1 liter of the blood. One blood dose is only 400 ml. This is the amount of the blood what the body recovers quickly enough and the endocrine and immune systems of the body have a powerful incentive to work. It has been observed that people who give the blood regularly they are not receptive to colds and flu and more rare have cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Regular blood donation prolongs youth because it stimulates the formation of blood and the body’s self-renewal.
