After a relatively peaceful summer, on Friday 7 October, from 2:30 pm to 7:00 pm, the French Blood Establishment (EFS) will organize a blood collection at the Rosporden cultural center.
For several months, the reserves remained fragile. September is the month of the resumption of hospital activity, with scheduled surgical interventions. “It is essential that the mobilization is regular to keep the reserves at a stable level” stresses an EFS member. “In fact, the blood collected is mainly used to cure people suffering from long-term diseases such as cancer or leukemia. Patients need blood products all year round. Every day in France 10,000 blood donations are needed to meet this, a figure that rises to 600 in Brittany ”.
Make an appointment, even at the last minute
To go to a donation place it is sufficient to make an appointment, even at the last minute, on dondesang.efs.sante.fr or the Blood Donation app. To donate blood, you must be between the ages of 18 and 70, weigh at least 50 kg, have no flu symptoms and bring an identity document.
