The “Become a Bone Marrow Donor” event held on 15/02/2022, by the association of parents of children with neoplastic disease “Floga”, at the multipurpose area of the Syntagma metro station, was crowned with success.
On the occasion of the world day against childhood cancer which has been established on February 15, the volunteers of Humanity Greece, the Bone Marrow Donor volunteer center of the University of Patras “Give Life”, and the club “Floga” carried out this action to raise awareness and informing young citizens about the donation process.
It is worth noting that more than 1,240 people were informed about the sampling process, while 607 were new volunteer Bone Marrow Donors within just a few hours.
We support actions aimed at the protection of vulnerable groups and social cohesion – for this reason, the medical equipment for the samplings was donated by medi-shop.gr & HaMed Halambalakis SA.
“We are becoming heroes, helping the children of “Floga” to quickly find compatible bone marrow donors and put an end to their battle with cancer soon. Be the Change, be a Giver!”
For access to the sampling room, all necessary health protocols will be followed as a vaccination or illness certificate is required. Humanity Greece: We Become Bone Marrow Donors – February 15 at Syntagma Metro. From 10:00 to 20:00. Tel.: 2610 969164
