26 July 2018 President Meta had a friendly meeting with the leaders of three youth forums, FRPD, LRI and FRESH in the frame of the “Blood Donation Alliance”
Within the “Blood Donation Alliance”, the President of the Republic, H.E. Mr Ilir Meta held today a meeting with the leaders of the three youth forums FRESSH, FRPD and LRI.
The purpose of this meeting was to encourage cooperation with the youth of these youth forums for the “Blood Donation Alliance”, an initiative of the President of the Republic, as well as their awareness of this initiative.
President Meta expressed the gratitude and the pleasure that young people from political party forums have joined for an extremely humane issue such as blood donation.
“I would like to thank you heartily that you, the three youth forums of the main political parties, became part of the ‘Blood Donation Alliance’, showing a high sense of social accountability and humanity. It is very important that the objectives of the ‘Blood Donation Alliance’ be made known to all of our young people, not just youth political forums, but also those of student associations, youth associations, all of them together to undertake an awareness campaign on the importance of blood donation, “said President Meta.
“To donate blood is an act of humanity and solidarity with those who need it vital, such as sickle talasemic, chronic sufferers, those who perform surgical interventions or who experience accidents. I believe that you will play a crucial role in this cause, so I make a direct appeal to join this initiative by donating blood, but also by becoming a regular donor. This appeal becomes stronger, especially in this summer season, when blood reserves diminish due to the decline in the number of donors “, – added President Meta. Also, the President of the Republic said that our society should promote volunteering and solidarity in blood donation and that young people can make a big difference to the success of this human cause.
