 Las Tunas: donors guarantee plasm for surgical operations
The members of the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution (CDR) of Cuban eastern province of Las Tunas contributed 17,316 voluntary donations of blood with which the plasm is guaranteed for surgical interventions in the different health centers of the territory.

Jose Luis Blanco Martinez, Provincial Coordinator of the CDR, stated that this achievement makes unnecessary the family donations and allows having a surer and more stable source of blood in the hospitals.

Blanco stressed that this achievement was possible thanks to more than 8,800 men and women, gathered in 98 detachments of voluntary donors that carried out this work in a disinterested way.

Those more than 6,800 CDR made, together with the neighbors doctors, an explanation process in each neighborhood, so that the members of this organization can understand the importance of this service, so effective and free in the hospitals.

Cuba has a voluntary donor for each 19 inhabitants, fact that demonstrates the level of conscience reached on this solidary mission.

According to scientific studies, in the 17th century the French doctor Jean Baptiste Denis was the first one in transfusing a human being.
