Mr. Walter Ferreira da Silva, who donated blood for the last time in Hemorio

In the last July 8th, Hemorio received the last donation Walter Ferreira da Silva, military for 48 years made gestures of solidarity that saved many lives. Walter visited the salon collects a day before completing 68 years, maximum age for being a blood donor, according to Decree of the Ministry of Health

In my first donation I was 20. Was at Parachute Battalion of the Brazilian Army and as he was completely healthy, I became a volunteer donor and spontaneous. Unfortunately, I reached the age limit and is very sad to know that this is the last time I come here for this purpose said Walter.

Even nearing the end of his career as a blood donor, the military ensures that others will follow his legacy.

I always invite acquaintances to donate blood. After all, all that are healthy should practice this act of solidarity. But without a doubt, my greatest hope is Gustavo, my 18 year old son said the military.
