|Celebration of the European Co-operation Day|
Within the framework of the European Co-operation day, an awareness activity concerning Blood Donation is organized in the Central Square of Xanthi-Greece, on 21/09/2016. This is followed by voluntary blood donation in the courtyard of the Holy Temple of St Foteini in collaboration with voluntary groups. All blood units collected will be given to local hospitals.
The aim is to raise awareness about voluntary blood donation as well as to promote Co-operation Programmes. Blood donation is an act of co-operation, which brings people and societies closer, a co-operation for life!
European Co-operation Day (EC day) is an initiative of the INTERACT network which aims to promote co-operation in the cross border areas of the EU with more than 70 Programmes participating with over 250 events organized.
