“BULGARIAN ORGANIZATION OF VOLUNTARY BLOOD DONATION” is a non-profit association operating in public interest, having its seat in the city of Sofia, Bulgaria, established on 20.10.2010. The main goal of the association is to encourage and promote regular, anonymous, voluntary, non-remunerated blood donation within the Republic of Bulgaria, Europe and Worldwide.


The normal functioning of every modern healthcare system and the provision of adequate medical assistance – from emergency life-saving operations, through planned surgeries, to treatment of diseases that require multiple blood transfusions – depends strongly on the securing of the necessary quantities of high quality human blood and blood products. And there is only one way for those to be provided – through blood donation!


We are certain that almost anyone has asked or has been asked to donate blood for a relative or friend. We are also sure that anyone who has donated or searched for blood has run into “the merchants” roaming in front of the local blood bank and has been disgusted with what they do. Probably some of us have been forced by the circumstances to use their “services”. We understand that many people feel embarrassment or even fear of donating blood and that stops them becoming voluntary blood donors.


We decided that it is time to do something about that!

“BULGARIAN ORGANIZATION OF VOLUNTARY BLOOD DONATION” set itself the following main aims:
1. to encourage and promote regular, anonymous, voluntary and non-remunerated blood donation within the Republic of Bulgaria, Europe and worldwide;
2. to work towards meeting the needs for high quality human blood and blood products within the Republic of Bulgaria, Europe and worldwide;
3. to work for the introduction and implementation of ways and means connected with the blood donation within the Republic of Bulgaria, Europe and worldwide, guaranteeing the safety of both the donor and the receiver;
4. to participate in the organization and promotion of regular campaigns of voluntary and non-remunerated blood donation within the Republic of Bulgaria, Europe and worldwide;
5. to develop and promote programs for educating the society on the beneficial aspects of blood donation and the harmful effects and risks of collecting blood from paid donors, in cooperation with patients who need blood transfusions and the patient organizations representing them;
6. to form a youth unit, working for the promotion and implementation of the aims of the association among young people;
7. to establish and maintain contacts with the blood collecting centers throughout the country, with the Ministry of Health, with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Science, with the World Health Organization and with other organizations with similar aims and activities;
8. to become a member of the International Federation of Blood Donor Organizations and to participate actively in solving the problems of shortage of high quality human blood and blood products within the Republic of Bulgaria, Europe and worldwide;
9. to work towards achieving the aims of the association, through educating and building more responsible civil society.


We believe that together we can achieve thеse aims!
