The National Fund for Blood donation

With the collaboration of ESA, a group of people eager to carry out effective civil actions in favor of the Lebanese population throughout the country have created the National fund for Blood Donation.
Blood donation has been identified as one of the most pressing issues in Lebanon due to the nature of its supply and because it affects everyone: Any person is liable one day to need blood transfusion whether for personal use or for any relative or next of kin.
The purpose of the National Fund is therefore to raise the public’s awareness on blood donation. Its operations are carried out closely with the Ministry of Public Health, in particular the Comité National de Transfusion Sanguine (CNTS).
