World Red Cross and Red Crescent Week

To commemorate World Red Cross and Red Crescent week, volunteers from the Red Cross of Ilidža Municipality organized the voluntary blood donation in cooperation with students and staff of International Burch University and the Institute of Transfusion Medicine of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.


Students and staff members of this university were more than happy to donate their blood, because they were aware of the fact that it is of an invaluable importance. In addition to the voluntary blood donation, volunteers distributed stamps, introduced students to the activities of the Red Cross, and explained how they can join and take part in different events.

"I am very pleased that students recognized the Red Cross mission and supported us in various ways, starting from volunteering, spreading our idea of humanity, and participating in numerous voluntary blood donation campaigns that are surely of a great importance. The purchase of stamps also contributed to helping those who are socially endangered and need our help," said Fatima Kovačević, a student of International Burch University and volunteer of the Red Cross of Ilidža municipality.
