12 Argentine Cities joined the 3rd Marathon

During the month of April, 12 cities of the country held this successful campaign that the Global Embassy of Activists for Peace carries out with the slogan “Life is in the Blood”.

San Salvador de Jujuy, Resistencia, Sáenz Peña, Tres Arroyos, Lomas del Mirador, Ezeiza, San Fernando, José León Suarez, Bahía Blanca, Mendoza, Córdoba y Olavarría, managed to collect 1,102 effective blood donations, doubling the figure they obtained during the previous International Blood Donation.

Each city counted with the collaboration of government authorities and public hospitals, which provided facilities for the different drives and in turn, along with volunteers from the Global Embassy, invited the public to participate through brochures, going door to door, in parks, schools and media; in this way many volunteers came to donate after having been explained the importance of blood donation.
