The donor can only donate when he/she clears all these tests successfully.

One donation can help save the lives of up to three people. He further stated that every adult human being (male or female) has 5 to 6 liters of blood. Any person between 18 and 60 years, weighing 45 kg or more can safely donate one unit of blood, that is, 350 ml at a time.
The blood donation was administered by an eminent team of doctors and efficient team of nurses, paramedics and other staff.
