Recently, sharing a picture of his donated plasma in a bag, Cristiano Ronaldo urged everyone to donate plasma and help the needed people in the society.
Wherever you are, he urges everyone to post a picture after donating plasma.
Plasma is a clear, straw-colored liquid portion of the blood. It helps with the clotting of the blood along with other functions. It contains water, salts, enzymes, antibodies, and proteins.
It is taken from plasma donors and can be used as vital medicine while treating some health issues. Plasma is often separated through laboratory methods after recovering blood from the donor. Even though many people are actively donating blood, many who are capable of doing it restrain themselves from donating blood due to some misconceptions.
Request for blood donors are surrounding the social media platforms these days which points out the need for more donors, especially in the rare groups. It takes approximately one hour for plasma donation and can be done twice in seven day period.
Hence, Christiano Ronaldo’s step towards creating awareness of blood donation is appropriate and the need of the hour.
