This week, students can donate blood in Leuven from Monday the 15th until Thursday the 18th. Bloedserieus is an initiative for students by The Red Cross Flanders. Twice a year they organize blood collections in six different student cities such as Leuven, Brussels and Antwerp. This way, the organization wants to encourage students to donate blood. This is important because the blood supply in Belgium keeps decreasing due to the high demand from hospitals.
Are you curious about the initiative? Watch the video below.
