Medellín needs a lot of Blood. The Medellín's Ministry of Health noted that every year in Medellín is needed around 80 thousand units to meet the demands of citizenship.
Knowing a little the problems blood donation in Colombian and in my city Medellín every year "Rotary International" does a blood donation campaign throughout Colombia.
Here in Medellín was on April 19, 2008. This event was very important for me and for My Rotary Club to which I belong "Rotaract Medellín Retorno". The event was in the Mall "Los Molinos". The slogan of the campaign was "Donate blood donates life". Every day the hospitals spends many liters of blood to : 1) patients with hematological problems (treatments of leukemia, hemophilia, cancer), 2) accidents and some kind of violence 3) care for children and mothers.
I was the organizer and responsible for all the logistics of the event. The "Americas Hospital" was working with my Club. And here I want to say with great satisfaction and happiness thanks to everyone who participated in the event for the effort, commitment, dedication and time so that everything was success. We have helped to reduce the blood shortage that exists in Medellín, also we contributed to educated people to donate blood.
The statistics of the campaign were as follows:
Total People who wanted to donate 133
Not passed the previous test 38
Donors effects 95
I am very proud of my Rotary Club "Rotaract Medellín Retorno" for their work in the event and also very proud and impressed by the support we receive from Banská Bystrica, Slovakia, represented by my slovak girlfriend Eva Vollmannova. She helped me a lot.
