This Sunday, June 14, the World Blood Donor Day will be celebrated.
The head of the donor department of the blood transfusion station Maria Fantych noted that the Transcarpathian regional blood transfusion station is the only organization that supplies blood and its components to medical facilities of the region. In her view, there is a need for such campaigns, because it is necessary to take blood from an average of 50 donors every day in order to keep the blood bank full. Today the situation is that the number of donors is about half of what is needed. According to Maria Fantych, college students are quite inert. Often people do not know that there is such an opportunity. Often they come to the station only when a tragedy occurs in the family and there is a need for blood transfusion.
People's deputies from Transcarpathia Valeriy Patskan and Robert Horvath took the opportunity to remind about the noble mission - to help people - and about themselves.
Those, who wish to follow the example of the people's deputies, are invited to come on Monday, June 15, at: Uzhgorod, Leo Tolstoy St., 15. You must have a passport.
You can donate blood at the Transcarpathian blood transfusion station every day from Monday to Friday, from 9.00 to 14.00. Competent persons aged 18 and over can be donors. According to employees of the institution, the entire procedure takes an average of half an hour.
