The 2nd phase of Blood Donation was carried out on Sunday 13th December 2020 at Glen Waverley Donor Centre.

As you may know currently only 1 in 30 people donate blood, but 1 in 3 people will need blood sometime during their lifetime.

Modern processing techniques ensures that a single blood donation, when separated into its components, can help at least 3 different patients and contribute to making up to 22 different products (including potentially life-saving immunizations for chicken pox, hepatitis B and tetanus). The majority of donated blood goes to people with cancer, as well as people who have suffered traumatic accidents, burns or those undergoing surgery.

OAAV would like to thank all the donors who donated blood on this day. Your one step can make a big difference and you have just contributed to saving lives.
