On September 11, a blood donation campaign was carried out at ALERT. This campaign was organized along with Porto Blood Regional Center from the Portuguese Blood Bank Institute ( Instituto Português do Sangue - IPS).
The main goal of this initiative was to sensitize ALERT collaborators to this crucial act of citizenship, since every day the availability of blood in hospitals depends on the good will of every single citizen to give blood regularly and altruistically. In this way, everyone can share their good health with those who have unfortunately lost theirs.
The challenged posed to ALERT collaborators had a successful outcome: the IPS team received 67 volunteers and was able to collect blood from 39 of them.
