“I hope everyone supports the donation campaign, as I did.” said the Prime Minister Boyko Borisov during a regular government session. Before the Council of Ministers was launched, Health Minister Kiril Ananiyev handed out donor card brochures “Yes! For life” to everyone in the hall.

The prime minister filled in the card and stated his desire to join the campaign of the Ministry of Health.

“Now days the most modern surgeries are performed in Bulgaria, we have wonderful surgeons. Some people say that because of prejudice, donation is not developed here. You are not only saving a life, but some part of you continue to live. What is the problem with prejudice? 1,151 people are waiting. And then it brings them back to completely normal life, making them absolutely healthy people. I hope everyone would think about it and pay attention to it. And if some people think so much of what would happen if they donate an organ- some part of them is left to live. It’s about thousands of people. I hope you will support this campaign too, “the Prime Minister added.

The Foreign Minister Ekaterina Zaharieva also supported the campaign. “I joined a National Donation and Transplantation, Supporting Campaign” she wrote on her Facebook profile. More information about the initiative is available here.
