Instead of donating a pint of whole blood, you can now donate a particular component (e.g. platelets, plasma or red blood cells) or a combination of components that is most needed by patients who match your blood type.
Blood Donor 24 is a team of dedicated and response donors who pledge to respond and give blood within 24 hours in emergency conditions.

Blood Bank needs URGENTLY Negative RhesusBlood Types (O Neg, A Neg, B Neg, AB Neg)
SSRN Hospital hosted its annual blood donation on 15th November 2018 in collaboration with the Regional Health Advisory Board of SSRN, the Triolet Bus Service and Anna Medical College at Montagne Blanche.
SSRN like all Hospitals and private clinics receive all their blood and blood products from the National Blood Transfusion Service. So hosting such events demonstrates the important relationship with blood bank and unfortunately when it comes to private clinics, only two to three of such medical institutions that organise a blood donation every year. Blood Bank relies on the support of the community (Mauritians) to ensure that the blood needs of your loved ones, family, friends are met. It is the responsibility of Blood Bank (NBTS) as the sole supplier of blood and blood products to ensure that patients at the hospital or private clinics receive the blood they need. It is also the social and corporate responsibilities for everybody be it individual or an organization including clinics to join forces by coming together to host blood donation. Sponsoring or hosting a blood donation like SSRN Hospital and other partners of blood bank is not difficult and it serves a good purpose by supporting this noble cause of life-saving and it demonstrates their commitment to the community (patients requiring blood and blood products for their survival and well-being).
There is simply no substitute for human blood. Voluntary blood donation is important to the health of our patients. Blood Bank needs to maintain an adequate blood supply for everyday emergencies. Thalassemia, cancer, cardiac and surgery patients, trauma victims, newborn babies and many others depend on blood donors. We encourage SAFE and Voluntary Young blood donors to come forward and save lives by donating their blood.
