Blood donation campaign

Dear colleagues,

The best way to be better as people is through helping each other and when that happens unconditionally, it is the most precious of them all. For those of you, who wish to do such a gesture, we provide you with this opportunity – donate blood, one of the most priceless medical resources and one of these that are always not enough, although the last years we succeed accomplishing better results. For another year, the Student Council at the Medical University – Varna together with the Regional Transfusion Center for Hematology (RTCH-Varna), as well as AMSB, ADMS and AFSV has the opportunity to organize a Blood donation campaign. 

The event will be held on the territory of RTCH-Varna. In order to comply with anti-epidemic measures and reduce the possibility of mixing flows, the transfusion center will provide to the colleagues  a separate office for blood donation. There will be volunteers to direct you to its entrance.

Location of RCTH-Varna: HERE.

Those of you who wish to carry out this selfless act are invited to do so on the following days and their respective hours:

09.1113:00 – 17:00

10.11 – 13:00 – 17:00

11.1113:00 – 17:00

12.1109:00 – 13:00

In order to avoid crowding we have planned to record by hours through a short Google form.

FOR REGISTRATION: HERE.
