September 11 – US National Day of Service and Remembrance
Today, on September 18, 2018 the United States Embassy in Skopje marked the September 11 – US National Day of Service and Remembrance through the blood donation action in collaboration with the Macedonian Red Cross and the Institute for Transfusion Medicine, which was attended by the Secretary General of the Macedonian Red Cross, Mr. Sait Saiti, the Ambassador of the United States of America, Mr. Jess Bailey, a representative from the Institute for Transfusion Medicine, Ms. Milenka Blagoevska, deputies, ministers, professors and volunteers from the Macedonian Red Cross.
Today’s blood donation action is already a recognizable feature of our cooperation, built on the principles of humanity and solidarity, which represent part of the individual and collective awareness for both countries.
Many times in the past, both the American and our people have faced challenges that require activism without making distinctions based on religious, ethnic and gender identity, which have made us more united and have put us above all human suffering through.
The jubilee has marked the building of friendships, the assistance provided towards the others, and the humanity in action. Throughout the years, we have learned more about each other, we have accepted our differences, we have given our contribution to the society and we have built strong grounds which have improved with years, said the Secretary General of the Macedonian Red Cross Mr. Sait Saiti, and for that matter he gave a token of appreciation to the US Ambassador, Mr. Jess Baily.
