We tell you all the details of the massive voluntary blood donation event: Salvatón: For you my blood.
In Peru, we need 650,000 units of blood annually to meet the goal to supply the demand for emergencies and treatments; however, our donor rates barely exceed 1% of the population and, of this percentageonly 21% do it voluntarily. As a result of this, 50,000 people die each year due to lack of blood for timely care.
The Salvaton is a massive voluntary blood donation event, organized by the Association For You My Bloodwhich will be held Saturday June 25 in the streets of Lima and that seeks to collect 750 units of bloodwhich will favor the blood banks of Hospital E. Rebagliati, Hospital G. Almenara, Hospital Santa Rosa, Maternity of Lima, National Children’s Institute of San Borja, INCOR, INEN and Clínica Tezza.
The campaign points will be:
- Megaplaza – Independencia
- Plaza San Miguel – San Miguel
- Pedro Ruiz Galo Park – Lince
- La Rambla – San Borja
