Donate blood, donate life!

Blood donation is a solidary gesture of donating a small amount of one's own blood to save the lives of people who undergo large and complex medical treatments and interventions, such as transfusions, transplants, oncological procedures and surgeries.

In addition to people who undergo medical procedures and interventions, blood is also essential for patients with serious chronic diseases - such as Sickle Cell Disease and Thalassemia - to live longer and with better quality, in addition to being vitally important to treat injuries in emergency situations or calamities.

A single donation can save up to four lives. A simple gesture of love and solidarity can generate many smiles. Do your part, regardless of the relationship between the donor and the recipient of the donation.

Blood is irreplaceable and without it it is impossible to live.  

The goal is to keep blood supplies always stocked and not just on specific dates or when someone you know needs it.

Now that you understand the importance of this act of solidarity, do your part.

Lives depend on you!

plasma donation

Plasma is the liquid part of the blood and it contains, among other substances, antibodies, which protect the body.


Studies carried out in countries that presented the first cases of COVID-19 showed the possibility of using plasma from healthy people who had mild infection to treat other patients with severe forms of the disease. The plasma of these cured people contains antibodies against COVID-19 that could help fight the infection.

Surveys from several centers around the world are evaluating this possibility, in an attempt to find an effective treatment against the disease that can offer more opportunity for recovery.




Pregnant women can develop antibodies that cause severe respiratory reactions in recipients.

  • Women cannot have had a pregnancy.

  • Not having symptoms of COVID-19 for at least 14 days.

  • Have a positive PCR result for SARS-Cov-2.
