“As we see it right now the crisis is worldwide. The COVID pandemic has taken a lot from us. So, we can see that the young generation is the ones coming out. They are our potential blood donors. They are healthy. They can go move about. They have no restrictions. They have no underlying condition. So, what we are doing right now, we are calling the attention of every young person to come in and donate blood. Because a healthy person is a healthy blood for us. So young person can come in every three months, and they can donate. They can pass on the message as well because they have a lot of friends. The more friends you know the more blood donations you will get.”
