German Ambassador to Serbia H E Axel Dittmann and participants of the Belgrade Dance Festival, signed donor cards at the ceremony which was a continuation of the campaign “The most important call of my life” organised by Hemofarm Foundation.
In partnership with the Ministry of Health, Hemofarm Foundation continues intensive campaign to raise awareness about the importance of organ donation and increase the number of transplants in Serbia. The event was attended by the ministers of the Government of Serbia, Zlatibor Lončar and Ana Brnabić, actors of Atelier 212, and US Ambassador Kyle Randolph Scott, who is himself the owner of a donor card. The host, CEO of Hemofarm, Ronald Seeliger owns two donor cards, both in Germany and Serbia. He said that this year was crucial for the adoption of the Law on Transplantation which will be a confirmation of all the efforts of the initiators of the campaign. Serbia earlier this year became a member of Eurotransplant, the European association of eight countries that have a common waiting list (among them there is Germany). On this occasion, a symbolic support by signing a donor card was given by the Ambassador of Germany to Serbia, H E Axel Dittmann. “Organ donation performed under appropriate conditions is a beautiful expression of solidarity and for several reasons: it gives dignity to the dying person, it becomes life support for others, showing a noble concern for the respect of life of others and implies a sense of humanity. That is why I am today signing a donor card and I encourage you to do the same” Dittmann said.
