For the most affected regions (Sofia and West Bulgaria) those are the NCTH-Sofia, „St. Anna“ hospital – Sofia and the hospitals in Blagoevgrad, Vidin, Vratza, Kiustendil, Lom and Pernik. You can find information about the addresses of the blood centers (in BG only, at this point), the contradictions to blood donation, the prerequisites to become a blood donor as well as additional information about the process of donating blood itself in our „Blood Donation“ section. You can, of course, contact us if you have any questions, using our contact form, as well as through our Facebook page.


Bulgarian Organization of Voluntary Blood Donation joins in on the appeal of the NCTH and the Ministry of Health and urges all who can donate blood and especially those with blood types „A“ and „O“ to respond and help! The shortage of blood is a serious problem in the entire country, so our appeal is to all of you, regardless of where you are – BLOOD HAS NO SUBSTITUTE – DONATE BLOOD, SAVE LIFE!!!
