On today's World Blood Donor Day, Tiefenbacher Group would like to actively support the Red Cross blood donation services and draw attention to blood donation and its importance for society with the #MissingType campaign.

Anyone can suddenly find themselves in need of a blood transfusion. Some accident victims are dependent on 50 or more units of blood to survive. Many medical interventions – such as operations or cancer treatments – are only possible today if a sufficient amount of human blood is available. In Germany alone, around 15,000 blood donations and approx. 5,000 plasma donations are needed every day.

It has not yet been possible to replace blood with another liquid or substance. Blood is therefore unique and blood donations are absolutely essential for patient care. Patients are therefore dependent on the constant commitment of blood donors.

We are delighted about the many employees who have volunteered to donate their blood and thus give other people the opportunity to continue living. Thank you for your support!
