Gianluca has been very busy since the early hours of this morning assisting in a very successful national blood donation drive being organised by PBS, the team of Xarabank and the Blood Transfusion Service Centre.
Among those answering to the call for blood donation were the European Union Commissioner for Health and Consumer Policy Dr. Tonio Borg, the Health Minister Dr Godfrey Farrugia and former Health Minister Dr. Joe Cassar. Other VIP’s included Dr Simon Busuttil, candidate for the leadership of the Nationalist Party, Amber Bondin, Mark Tonna and former Eurovision representative Kurt Calleja. The event is being animated by popular duo “Gorg u Pawlu”.
The activity will run for another hour. We urge anyone interested in donating blood to visit the National Blood Transfusion Centre by 3pm (CET). Anyone interested in donating blood is advised to eat lightly and avoid food that contains high fat content, such as junk food before the blood donation, as this may impact the results of the blood tests. Blood donors will be required to present their ID Card before the blood transfusion takes place.
