You might have heard that donating blood once can save the life of three different people. When you donate one unit of blood doctors separate your red blood cells (RBCs) plasma and platelets and give it to people in need. Donating blood is a noble and selfless act. But due to numerous misconceptions and myths people hesitate to do so. According to data revealed by the Ministry of Health Government of India in 2018 India had a shortage of supply of 1.9 million units of blood. Imagine how many lives could have been saved if people came forward to donate.
