Twelve municipal organizations of the Red Cross of the Zenica-Doboj Canton (ZDK) donated 2.223 blood doses to the Cantonal Hospital in Zenica (KBZ) and 825 doses for the General Hospital in Tesanj (OBT) last year, ie a total of 3,048 blood doses for these two hospitals in the ZDK.
According to the Secretary-General Ermin Cato, out of that number, 1,984 were collected for the KBZ, and at the request of the family an additional 239 blood doses. For the General Hospital Tesanj, all donated blood was collected in numerous actions.
“We still do not have data for individual donations, but we estimate it is some 1,200 doses of blood. Our patients are treated at the Clinical Center of the University of Sarajevo. We have the exact number of donated blood for KCUS only for organizations from Visoko and Olovo that donated 225 and 282 doses. We do not have data for Vares, Breza and Kakanj,” Cato said to Federal News Agency.
