The event took place at the Interchange stop in Santa Cruz and was attended by the president of Metrotenerife and Titsa, Enrique Arriaga, and the president of the ICHH, Maria Teresa Gutiérrez, as well as, the director of Mobility at the Government of Tenerife, José Alberto León.
Arriaga explains that “on the eve of Donor Day, we activate the new campaign of the ICHH in the collective public transport of the island. That way we collaborate to promote the need for blood donations with the goal to maintain stocks. It is a responsibility of all and we appeal to the solidarity of the population through this campaign that we advertise on our tram”.
