Health at heart: an excellent reason to give blood!

Giving blood is a gesture of great ethic and civic value, necessary to save and improve the lives of the ill. Blood cannot be artificially produced and the availability of this priceless resource depends entirely on the generosity of donators.


In addition from being an act of unselfishness, giving blood is also beneficial for the donator. By undergoing the routine check-ups and exams that are performed before each donation it is possible to spot illnesses which otherwise would not have been recognized before the occurrence of symptoms. A periodic donation furthermore, favors the renewal of blood cells.
