Donate blood at TAMK on Valentine’s day 14.2.!

Join us in saving lives! Tamko and the Finnish Red Cross will organise a blood donation event in room C1-05 on Wednesday 14.2. at 11-15. 

Donating blood is an easy way to help and only takes about an hour. A small effort for the donor is a big help for the patient. 

Every weekday, approximately 800 blood donors are needed in Finland. Blood is needed by, among others, surgery and cancer patients, accident victims and babies. Blood of all blood types is needed because there are patients from all blood types. You can always check the current blood situation on our website in the blood status barometer. So far, no artificial blood has been invented to replace donated blood. 

Can I donate? 

 Most people can donate blood. The most commonly used medications, such as blood pressure, cholesterol and mild antidepressants, do not usually prevent blood donation. The blood donor must be healthy, between 18 and 70 years old and weigh at least 50 kilograms. The new donor must be under 60 years of age. A person aged 66 years or over may donate blood if less than two years have passed since the last blood donation.
