Examples of struggles for the Voluntary Blood Donation

In 1939, has arrived in Brazil Mrs. Leonora Carlota Osório, from Austria. Embracing the volunteerism, joined the Red Cross where she did her best against the blood trade and the encouragement of voluntary and altruist blood donation. On November 25th, she founded the Associação Brasileira de Doadores Voluntários de Sangue (ABDVS) – Brazilian Association of Voluntary Blood Donors. She has been awarded in 30 countries and has received the title of FIODS (Federação Internacional das Organizações de Doadores Voluntários de Sangue – International Federation of Voluntary Blood Donors Organizations).

After 48 years of struggle for the cause, Carlota died in Brazil with 83 years, leaving established in national calendar the national day of voluntary Blood Donor, celebrated on November 25th, and followers for the cause of blood as Maria Ivone Carraro de Mendonça, who has continued the work in Brasilia and, in 1997, summoned a group of soroptimists ladies (service Club) to start in similar work at Fundação Pró-Sangue Hemocentro de São Paulo. Thus, volunteering for the blood has taken looming.

The Body of Volunteers was one of the 115 social organizations awardee by the Voluntarism Center of São Paulo, in 2011, with the PARTNER ORGANIZATION’S SEAL.
