More about the project „Together in diversity“…


Bulgarian organization of voluntary blood donation yet again joins the initiative of the European organization for Rare Diseases – EURORDIS for raising awareness and commemoration of the International Rare Disease Day. The Project “Together in diversity” is one of the initiatives, through which we show our support and empathy to all people suffering from rare diseases, in an effort to turn the attention of the society to their existence.

The project includes an informational campaign, a part of which is the distribution of a charity calendar for 2013. BOVBD joined the project in support of people suffering from Thalassemia Major – a rare, genetic, hematological disease, since shortage of blood is a serious problem for those patients who need a blood transfusion on every 20-25 days. We take this opportunity to once again call upon everyone, whose health permits, to overcome the fear of donating blood and the carelessness to the shortage of blood and to become a regular blood donor.

You can learn more about the initiative from the interview of Nadezhda Tzekulova with Stefka Popova, President of Bulgarian Organization of Voluntary Blood Donation, aired on the Bulgarian National Radio on February 23rd 2013 as a part of the information campaign.
