«GIVE BLOOD TO SAVE LIVES»: A DONATE BLOOD ACTION FOR THE NEEDS OF ROAD ACCIDENTS IS UNDERWAY THIS WEEK IN UKRAINE
People in Ukraine are giving blood in support of those injured in the accident this week. The nationwide action «Give Blood and Save Lives» is held twice a year as art of the All-Ukraine Road Safety Week at the initiative of the International Charitable Foundation «Assistance to Victims of Road Accidents». The aim is to help doctors collect blood that will really be useful to victims of road accidents,
and most importantly, to draw public attention to the problem of injuries in road accidents, high mortality due to blood loss, lack of donated blood in Ukraine.
As every year, the Okhmatdyt National Children’s Specialized Hospital in Kyiv held this action. On November 18 alone, a record number of people responded to give blood to children injured in road accidents. Among them are our regular donors: employees of almost all units of the National Police of Ukraine, the State Transport Security Service of Ukraine, the Judicial Protection Service, the Service
Center of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, who, by the way, always willingly help with donated blood in case of urgent need. The management of the Foundation, children’s hospital, doctors express their sincere gratitude to all those who joined this campaign. The hospital reported that on that day, about 40 liters of blood and
its components were collected in Okhmatdyt as a result of the action.
The International Charitable Foundation «Assistance to Victims of Road Accidents» sincerely thanks all those who joined the action and calls for donations not only within the action, taking into account all medical indications for blood donation and anti-epidemic measures.
