The Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social (CCSS) – Costa Rican Social Security Fund, will be out on Sundays for blood donors to meet the demands of the medical centers.

The CCSS seeks to maintain reserves and thus guarantee the condition of patients who need transfusions.

This Sunday, August 19, from 8 a.m. to noon, the Banco Nacional de Sangre (National Blood Bank) will be in Tejar del Guarco, Cartago; on Sunday, Sept. 2, it will be at the Cruz Roja Costarricense de San Ignacio de Acosta (San Jose) starting at 7:30 in the morning.

People can donate blood up to four times a year and in each donation.
