People often understand that having to sacrifice my own life so that others could live, therefore it is not always considered that “donating blood is to give life a gift”. It can be seen that people who are sick and the symptoms are getting worse whether it is caused by an accident or any serious disease that causes the blood in the body to be lessen.
