Hospital Saint Charles of the HLA Hospital Group collaborates next Wednesday with the Valencian Community blood transfusion center and the City Council in a campaign that seeks to recover the blood reserves that have been seriously affected during the pandemic generated by COVID-19 .
For four years, HLA has collaborated with the blood establishments of the cities where it has a presence, organizing a donation marathon for World Donor Day. Thanks to this initiative, the hospital group has collected more than 600 bags of blood in a single day. This year, due to the exceptional situation that has caused the spread of COVID-19, the day will be shorter and will be carried out under strict security measures that guarantee the protection of donors.
All citizens who wish can go to donate blood to the Social House of Denia on Calderón street number 4. between 10:00 and 13:30 and from 16:30 to 20:30.
The motto of the World Health Organization for this year is “donate blood so that the world continues to beat”, a call for people to donate blood regularly and contribute to better health. Each donation can save three lives and blood is essential in urgent treatments and interventions.
For its part, the ASISA Delegation in Alicante has organized a similar day on June 14 at the Archaeological Museum of the city under the slogan "filling lives, blood and marrow donation campaign" that has the support of the Center for Transfusions of the Valencian Community, the Alicante City Council, the Alicante Provincial Council and various companies in the province.
