I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the partners and remind you that even with the numbers achieved by the ‘Red June’ campaign, our stocks are still low, so we continue to need donors. Donating blood is a way of protecting others”, said Hemorrede superintendent, Heloina Oliveira. For the Secretary of State for Health, Afonso Piva, “it is gratifying to see the engagement of teams from all blood centers and to know the concern of partners and the detachment of the population that takes some of their time to help us save lives. I am a donor and I call on those who are not yet, to be and reinforce the team of heroes and heroines from Tocantins”, he highlighted.
