On 31 October, members of the EUFOR Liaison and Observation Team houses in Foca and Novo Sarajevo donated blood at the Red Cross Clinic in Novo Sarajevo in order to help those who most need it within Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Captain Jozef Krehlik, who is part of Slovakia’s contribution to EUFOR’s mission, said,
“We wanted to offer our blood as there is always a demand for it and when people need blood it is so important that they can get it”.
EUFOR maintains 17 LOT houses in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which are manned by 7 different troop contributing nations. These are used to stay in touch with local authorities and the population in order to be aware of local issues which could affect the security situation.
