Jesús Vinajer Urquiza arrived at his 86 blood donations on a day that was carried out, for this purpose, at the headquarters of the Cooperativa No Agropecuaria of the SANCOF construction, where he has been working since its foundation.
“I fulfill this sacred duty since I was very young, I am always willing to make my humble contribution to health, it is very necessary to save human lives inside and outside this country, as our Commander in Chief Fidel Castro Ruz taught us,” He said with sincere emotion.
Jesus was not the only donor, for those present it was of great astonishment to see Yenisleidis Fundora Molina, neighbor of the Camilo Cienfuegos cast, a town where the cooperative is located, to come forward to donate his blood for the twentieth occasion, the only woman among the 60 volunteers: “ I believe that there should be no differences between men and women to give blood, we just have to think that with that act we can save lives, who knows if even a child with a blood disease.
The laboratory technician Mariusca Pérez Rubio, belonging to the Municipal Health Directorate and annexed to the Blood Bank in Matanzas, explained: “It is not the first time that I have come to this entity with my colleagues who form a mobile team. The workers here are altruistic and very often have the initiative to make this gesture so human.
“The first thing we do is to do a checkup, because to donate blood the person must have at least 12.5 hemoglobin, we make a clinical file, the doctor who always comes to them measures their blood pressure and then if everything is fine they go to make the donation ”.
Mariana Montenegro Morales, communicator of SANCOF, said «that the members of this association support the processes that take place in the country and, precisely on this day of donation, they ratify it.»The moment was propitious to activate the movement We donate for your life through which the cooperatives come voluntarily and contribute their blood to support the Cuban health system.
Precisely, parallel to this activity we did a garbage collection work in the streets of Camilo Cienfuegos and the neighborhood of Pueblo Nuevo, communities where the headquarters of the cooperative is located.
“We are at a time where we help society by doing what we have to do and thinking as a country,” said Mariana Montenegro, a SANCOF communicator.
