KFOR organized blood donation for the National Blood Transfusion Centre of Kosovo
Pristina - Over 115 KFOR military and civilian personnel from over 28 different
nations voluntarily donated blood to support the National Blood Transfusion
Center and the people of Kosovo.
The donations have been deposited in the NBTCK in Pristina and the blood
products can be redistributed to any national medical facilities in need and
several International Organisations in Kosovo.
The very positive response from the large number of donors and the succes
of the event underscores the widespread awareness among KFOR
personnel of how donating blood is a great act of the many nations who
partecipated demonstrates that solidarity overcomes any differences we
may have due to ethnicity or creed.
Dr Bukurije Zhubi PhD, the Director of NBTCK expressed her special thanks
and gratitude to the KFOR Organization and hope that this activity, held in
the wake of many other drives throughout all KFOR facilities during last
decades, will occur on a regular basis to help to strengthen the bond and
cooperation between KFOR and civilian organization in Kosovo.
