Organise a Blood Drive

You can help the National Blood Transfusion Service not only by donating blood but in other ways too. Either by raising awareness about the importance of giving blood or by being an organizer/volunteer. 

The Blood Donation Mobile Unit​ 
Mobile Blood Donation Unit
The Blood Donation Mobile Unit visits various localities and places of work during the year. This facilitates and encourages the recruitment of new blood donors, especially those who have limited free time. The mobile unit collects more than 3000 units of blood per year and has become an important source of blood collection. When the Blood Donation Mobile Unit visits a town or villages we call this event a BLOOD DRIVE.
Blood Drives
When organizing a blood drive the organizer may not necessarily be a blood donor. ​ There are some criteria to be met before a blood drive can be organised. These are: Identify a contact person, normally the person organizing the event prepares a list of about 25 persons who are ready to donate blood, and encourages new ones. Keep in contact with the persons on the list to remind them of the event.
Those organisers or employers who do not succeed to meet the above criteria, but have a small number of donors who would like to donate, can still help by sending the group to the blood donation centre at G'Mangia. For further information, you can call on 79307307 or 22066209 or e-mail us at [email protected]
