Aga is originally from Poland but has been living in Ireland for a number of years. She is active in local life and is a member of the local theatre group
Being from Poland, Aga wasn’t even sure she could give blood in Ireland. She had never been asked or even knew people who were donors, but she went anyway.
Aga finds giving blood is something that makes her feel more connected to her community, and was surprised to see people she knew were active donors but never really talked about it. When Aga had to stop giving blood during and after pregnancy, she was keen to return again once she was eligible. She’ll do anything for her son – and giving blood is a practical way to help young children and others in her community.
