From the point of view of the above idea, a blood donation occurs when a person voluntarily has blood drawn and used for transfusions and/or made into bio pharmaceutical medications by a process called fractional (separation of whole-blood components)( Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).

Even though these can mostly occur at a blood bank, they are also set up at a location in the community such as a shopping center, workplace, school, or house of worship.

The wellbeing and health of the blood donors is of prime importance for the medical profession. A lot has been discovered and written about protection of the recipients from the potential hazards of blood transfusion.” Moreover, they pointed that the need for blood is great. On any given day, approximately 32,000 units of Red Blood Cells are needed.
