Under the auspices of Deputy Minister of Social Welfare Marilena Evangelou, the blood donation event will take place on December 21 at 12.30pm at the Engomi blood donation station.

“Donating blood is a gift of life to our fellow citizens who are in genuine need, making it the most beautiful Christmas gift for them,” the deputy ministry said in a statement.
