Having been playing an important role in TRNC’s blood donation campaigns, Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU), will also support the “Blood Donation Project” of the Turkish Red Crescent. The Turkish Red Crescent Blood Services General Management Operation Manager Dr. Metin Kalender and officials visited EMU Rector Prof. Dr. Necdet Osam along with North Cyprus Turkish Red Crescent Chair Ahmet Ulusoy on Thursday, the 6th of July 2017. During the courtesy visit, Dr. Metin Kalender informed Prof. Dr. Necdet Osam about the Turkish Red Crescent’s operations in general, the Blood Donation Project and the annual congress taking place within the context of the European Union Project.
Thanking Turkish Red Crescent and North Cyprus Turkish Red Crescent for their visit, EMU Rector Prof. Dr. Necdet Osam stated that EMU has always been supporting blood donation campaigns. Underlining that the university will be more than happy to support Turkish Red Crescent’s project, Prof. Dr. Osam also mentioned that as an illness frequently observed within the TRNC, Thalassemia requires great attention in terms of blood donation. Prof. Dr. Osam noted that the primary aim of EMU is to serve the society and that they are open to support the Turkish Red Crescent by all means. During the meeting, methods of supporting the project were also amongst the points of discussion.
