The largest number of blood transfusions – 30% – is provided to patients receiving treatment in the oncology and haematology sections, the National Blood Transfusion Service has said.
The demand for blood is very high for these patients and therefore the Service is calling on Gozitans to please show their compassion with them and attend a blood donation session in Gozo this Sunday, the 30th of September.
Please visit the District Health Centre in Xewkija to give your much needed donation. The session will be 8:00am to 1:00pm (last registration until 1:00pm).
It is important to always take your Identity Card, or Driving License or Maltese Passport and to drink plenty of water beforehand.
The Service thanks everyone who intends to donate.
