ALL WE NEED IS BLOOD
Last week’s donation has been another success
The Transfusion Service of the Swiss Red Cross of the Italian Speaking part of Switzerland, with which USI has organised the two-day event, announced that 90 donations
were made. An excellent outcome, which gives a valuable contribution to the Canton’s hospitals and clinics in need of about 13,000 red cell concentrates for their patients. Reaching this goal is always a challenge, which is why each contribution is important: thanks to all!
