This is the big one! Each year we get almost 1000 students at the party from all medical faculties in Prague. Do not miss it, it's going to be huge!
As medical students, we spend hundreds of hours pouring through blood cells sizes, memorizing clotting times and trying to decypher what on earth paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria is. Although today blood may mean these things to you, to countless victims of trauma and disease, blood means life. 1 in 3 people will need blood in their lifetime, it is needed every 2 seconds in hospitals and in less than half an hour between classes, you can quite literally help save multiple lives. There are dozens of statistics and reasons to donate, but the only reason you need your own. Whatever your reason to donate is, your LF1 MEDSOC Board and Tamir Kaplansky have been working hard to make the process as quick and simple as possible.
So what do you need to do?
Come to 'Fakultní transfuzní oddělení' (enter the General Teaching Hospital from U nemocnice and turn right to Building A12) between 10 AM - 2 PM on Thursday, May 17th.
What you need to bring:
1) Some form of identification (an ISIC card is enough),
2) Proof of Health Insurance (both Czech and foreign will be accepted)
And that's it. The staff and forms will be in English and foreign insurance will be accepted. We will have friendly student volunteers to help you through the process and a delicious treat for you when you're finished.

"Raising Hope is a non-profit organisation set up by Medical and Dental students from the English Parallel. We aim to help provide funding and political awareness for the Children’s Centre at Thomayer Hospital in Krč.
I have always loved working and spending
time with children. I first visited the Centre during our Public Health lesson and
immediately fell in love with the children and had great admiration for the
wonderful and loving job the staff do at the Centre.
We later spoke to the Director and she told us that the Centre was at risk of closure due to inadequate funding and changing political policy. I couldn’t imagine where these children would all go and what they would do if they didn’t have the support at this wonderful home.
I decided I had to do what I could; I contacted fellow students and friends to start a group in order to come up with ideas to help raise money and also awareness for the situation that the Centre faces.
All the students in our faculty (both English and Czech parallel) have shown great support for Raising Hope and been extremely generous donating their time and their money to help us support these children. Only because of this generosity have we been successful in starting this project and raising so much money in such a small amount of time.
I really hope support for Raising Hope continues to grow and we can all work together to help these children hold on to their home."
