Spain: Volunteers donate blood to restore depleted Madrid reserves

Residents headed to donate blood on Wednesday as part of a campaign to recover the reserves of the Community of Madrid depleted during the COVID crisis.

The centre set up in the regional government headquarters was hoping to receive 3,000 donations in the next three days.

“I saw the call a couple of days ago, saying that blood was needed in the Community of Madrid, and I did not hesitate to come to donate. I have already donated more times before,” said Jesus, one of the donors.

Blood shortages forced many hospitals in the Madrid region to postpone non-urgent surgeries, due to the drop in the number of donations during Christmas and after the ‘Filomena’ storm.
