During May, the Global Embassy of Activists for Peace (GEAP) carried out different media campaigns in Argentina, with the purpose of inviting the people to demonstrate their solidarity and love for others joining to the 7th International Blood Drive Marathon, which is part of the Integral Program “Life is in the Blood”.
The activities were held in touristic areas and crowded establishments in Mendoza, Olavarria, Cordoba, Resistencia, Misiones, San Fernando and Azul, with the goal of obtaining a bigger participation from the citizens to maintain the blood banks stocked.
