With 25 Nepalese and Spanish peacekeepers donating blood, the Meiss Ej-Jebel Hospital received about 12 litres of it. This was the first such activity by the UNIFIL peacekeepers in Meiss Ej-Jebel.

According to a press release issued by UNIC, sector Commander Brigadier General Romero Mari and the Nepalese Battalion Commanding Officer, Lt. Col. Narayan Bahadur Thapa, attended the event – with the latter also donating blood.
