3rd International Blood Donation Marathon in Pitalito, Hila, Colombia

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

 

On Tuesday April 22nd the Global Embassy of Activists for Peace carried out the 3rd International Blood Drive, in Pitalito, Colombia.

Laboyos Valley was filled with theatrical events, dances, and cheering during the blood drive held at the Parque Principal. A total of 140 units of blood were obtained during the blood drive from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., significantly exceeding the expectations of the San Antonio Hospital Blood Bank, as well as their resources for the marathon. Given the large number of volunteers, several people were unable to donate.

The love, enthusiasm and commitment of the Activists for Peace awoke in many the desire to get involved in the Embassy as Activists, learn about its objectives, projects and campaigns.

This unprecedented event for the municipality was supported by small businesses, and covered by multiple local media outlets.
