The Largest and Most Modern Blood Donation Venue Opens in Shenzhen

The blood donation hall at the new site of Shenzhen Blood Center, located at No.2, Antuoshan 1st Road, Futian District, was officially opened on November 8. On its first day of operation, over 100 caring citizens visited the hall and 92 people donated blood successfully. This newly opened blood donation hall, which combines whole blood and apheresis platelets donation services, is currently the largest and most modern blood donation venue in Shenzhen. The bright, spacious and open-style waiting hall is equipped with seven health counseling machines, which help to complete height, weight and blood pressure measurement and health counseling in just 3-5 minutes. Shenzhen has taken the lead in exploring and promoting voluntary non-remunerated blood donation in China since 1993, with a total of over 5.34 million blood donations, over one billion milliliters of blood donated and over 1.75 million patients rescued.

Coinciding with the 30th anniversary of the implementation of voluntary blood donation in Shenzhen this year, Shenzhen Blood Center completed its overall relocation. It will provide a better platform for all Shenzhen citizens to give love, and help Shenzhen to become a model of civilized practices in this new era.
