We are currently recruiting donors only from the Lisbon or Évora area.

How is donor selection made?

Donors must comply with the online requirements and be available for a medical interview where selection is made according to the most rigorous clinical criteria.
In order to guarantee the highest safety and quality of the collected material, in addition to a fecal sample, a blood sample will be requested for analysis, at the beginning and at the end of the donation period.

How are donations made ?

The stool collection process is simplified by using a kit provided to the donor. This kit can be adaptable to the toilet allowing a more convenient collection and without handling the feces.
A courier will collect the donation at donors' home or place of work as most convenient.

When will the donations take place?

We are currently in the recruitment and donor selection phase. If you are eligible, your donations will take place between March / April.

Will there be other dates for donations in the future?

We want to save lives now and continue to do so in the future. This first campaign is very important. If you are unable to donate now and want to be informed of new campaigns in the future, register here.

Do I benefit from becoming a donor?

The biggest benefit is the opportunity to be able to contribute to the treatment of serious and life threatening diseases.
