At the 237th action in a row to join Registry of voluntary hematopoietic stem cell donors held today at the premises of the company Infinum d.o.o. in Zagreb, a total of 35 new potential donors joined the Registry.
By donating blood the employees of the company became part of the mission promoted by the Ana Rukavina Foundation which constantly expands the Registry and continues to save those who are suffering around the world.
We are sincerely grateful to all the dear people who came and joined the Registry and thus offered hope to treat those who are suffering.
We would also like to thank Martina Dugandžić from the company Infinum d.o.o. at whose initiative we organized this action.
The next action to join the Registry will be held next Wednesday, February 19, 2014, from 6 PM to 8 PM at the Tituš Brezovački Primary School (Špansko 1) in Zagreb as part of a sports-entertainment humanitarian event.
The action will be held at the initiative of the school’s psychologist, Prof. Silva Strnad-Jerbić. She contacted us inspired by the desire of one of her pupils who had been struggling with a malignant disease for a year and a half and who had received bone marrow from a foreign donor.
The wish of Prof. Strnad-Jerbić and the ailing student was to get as many people from their immediate environment to join the Registry in order to expand the Croatian Registry and thereby increase the chances of treating those suffering in Croatia and abroad.
As part of this sports-entertainment humanitarian event, the Tituš Brezovački Primary School will present “water sports”: swimming, water polo, rowing, kayaking, synchronized swimming, diving and deep-sea diving along with a number of famous guests from Croatian sports.
Tickets are 15 kuna, and for children up to 10 years old the entrance is free. The monies raised from the ticket sales will be allocated to help the families of the T. Brezovački Primary School, to finance “School in Nature” for the 4th grade classes, a field trip for students in May, and for the school leaving excursion for this year’s 7th grade students.
Come and join the Registry so we can fulfill the wish of a suffering student and support the activities of the T. Brezovački Primary School!
