Paraguayans donate the sap of life and exceed the harvesting capacity
At the San Lorenzo University (UNISAL), Capiatá headquarters, the Global Embassy of Activists for Peace (GEAP) in Paraguay, held a blood drive and an awareness talk with the aim of promoting the voluntary donation of safe blood, fostering the principle of love and the positive values of the human being.
The activity was carried out with the support of Blanca Bernal, in charge of the transfusion area of the District Hospital of Capiatá, as well as the National Blood Program through its collecting bus, and the UNISAL.
The campaign counted with the participation of Paraguayan citizens, who expressed their solidarity by donating the sap of life. In this way, they joined the list of anonymous heroes who feel great satisfaction in helping their peers.
