The National Blood Transfusion National Service (Servizz Nazzjonali tat-Trasfużjoni tad-Demm) has appealed to the management committees of sporting, cultural, musical, philanthropic, political and religious entities to encourage their members to donate blood during the festive season.

Blood donations may be made as follows:

  • Blood Donation Centre in Gwardamanga – open daily (7 days a week) from 8.00 am to 6.00 pm
  • The Mobile Blood Donation Unit will be near Kalkara parish church on Sunday 8th December from 8.30 am until 1.00 pm
  • The Auberge in Xewkija will be also open for blood donations on Sunday 8th December from 8.00 am until 1.00 pm.

It is important to bring the identity card, driving license or Maltese passport with you.
