Urgent call for blood donors at Monaco’s hospital


Just before summer begins, Monaco’s Blood Transfusion Centre is asking for your help.

In aid of World Blood Donor Day, there will be four opportunities to donate blood this month.

Quick and easy, all you need to do is go to the Princess Grace Hospital (CHPG) to donate from the 14 to 18 June.

“We don’t have enough blood. We need 5000 bags of blood from the Principality, which means 1800 donors,” explained Hervé Renard, Director of the Blood Transfusion Centre at CHPG, during an interview with news channel Monaco Info.

Due to the pandemic, these figures have not improved. Also, since caravans are no longer allowed, as they take up too much space, donations have suffered even more.

When can you donate?

  • Monday 14 June, 8am-2pm
  • Tuesday 15 June, 8am-2pm
  • Wednesday 16 June, 10am-3pm
  • Thursday 17 June, 8am-2pm

To make an appointment, call +377 97 98 98 20.
