AS Monaco FC mobilises for blood donation

By Staff Writer - April 9, 2019

Recently renovated, the CHPG Blood Transfusion Center hosted this week’s AS Monaco Football Club coach Leonardo Jardim for a blood donation.

This event was part of the agreement signed between the Government and the Principality’s professional football club, to raise the awareness of this important health issue to Monaco FC supporters.

“It is an immense honour to receive Leonardo Jardim today. It is very important for us to associate blood donation with sport,” welcomed Dr. Anne Gouverner-Valla, Head of the CHPG Blood Transfusion Center. “I hope this will help us to mobilise the most donors possible. I hope that many people will come to support AS Monaco on Saturday and give their blood before the match,” she said.

On 13 April, the next collection will be organised before the Louis II Stadium, before the match between AS Monaco at the Stade de Reims at 20h, in the framework of the 32nd day of Ligue 1.

Thus, from 4pm until kick-off, the volunteer donors will be able to go to the mobile collection unit located on the forecourt (just next to the AS Monaco Shop Truck) to donate their blood.

Every year 5,000 donations of blood are needed for the 800 patients transfused in the Principality.
