Peter Pollák, the Slovak Government Plenipotentiary for the Roma Community, organized a blood drive in Banská Bystrice last week. Several dozen Roma came from all over Slovakia to the building of the district authority to visit a mobile transfusion station.  

"The blood in the veins of the Roma is the same as that of any other person in Slovakia. Blood is not black or white, it's red for everybody. I am convinced that the blood given today by Romani people will save people's lives no matter what their race," Pollák said.

During the summer months there is often an acute lack of all types of blood in Slovak hospitals. Pollák plans to continue such events and intends to organize a blood drive in other parts of Slovakia as well.
