A week after World Blood Donor Day, the French Blood Establishment (EFS) in Guadeloupe continues to collect, while the state of the reserves remains worrying, a few weeks before departures on vacation.
June 14 was World Blood Donor Day. The French Blood Establishment (EFS) in Guadeloupe took the opportunity to raise awareness among Guadeloupeans about this issue. A moment used to recall the importance of the mobilization of donors, at a time when the state of reserves remains worrying a few weeks before departures on vacation.
Guadeloupe is not self-sufficient. 15,000 donations are needed to cover the annual needs of the archipelago, while the EFS Guadeloupe-Guyane collected only 8,000 in 2022. 15,000 blood bags means 60 donations per collection day.
