Tabak; “60 units of blood have been donated to Turkish Red Crescent”
Tabak said that, “The most reliable blood is given by the volunteers; regularly and consciously, blood saves people’s life in every way and affects the health of the blood donor positively. With blood donation, the blood of the donator is renewed and on the other hand the need of those who need urgent blood is provided”. At the end of the campaign held at EUL 60 units of blood have been donated to Turkish Red Crescent.
Tabak stated that many campaigns have been organized and will continue to be organized during the year in order to meet the urgent need for blood by the European University of Lefke and thanked all the volunteers who participated in the blood donation campaign.
