137 units in Sanya selected as volunteered sites for blood donation
Having faced a blood shortage every summer, 137 units in Sanya have been selected as the volunteered sites for the blood donation.
According to Sanya Blood Center, summer is the usual low season for blood donation, when the situation for the blood supply is still in high demand.
At present, the demand for blood donation in Hainan grows at a year-on-year increase of 10% to 15%. The province’s blood demands can only be met if 90,000 to 100,000 people donate every year.
The local authorities said they will encourage more people, including college student volunteers to donate their blood this year to meet the demand. Another 10 units including Qiongzhou College are listed as sites to donate blood for emergency uses.
