he head of the Hemotherapy sector of the SAMIC hospital in this city, Oscar Melgarejo, invites the community to show solidarity and donate blood. The professional realized the importance of being a volunteer to donate blood, at least twice a year. “To be a voluntary blood donor, the person must bring their identity document, be over 18 years old, up to 60 years old, and be in good health, that is, not have the flu, or a picture of illness, not be taking medications, that is, the donor must be healthy”, he specified. Those interested in making a donation should call 3764-227239, from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Melgarejo reminded the community that donating blood is easy and safe. It is an anonymous, free and voluntary act. Blood donation is a safe procedure since professionals have been trained to take extreme safety and hygiene measures. Sterile and disposable materials are used. The current situation requires the solidarity of healthy people who can donate blood since the country’s banks suffer from the lack of this essential element for the preservation of life.
