On 6 July 2022, Donor Day was held at the Kiev Cardboard and Paper Mill. All wishing employees of the enterprise and residents of Obukhiv could donate blood and join a responsible cause.
This was not the first year the mill invited the representatives of Kiev regional centre of blood service. This year it was especially important because during the war the need for blood products is much higher than in peacetime.
“This is a traditional day at the company, which takes place every year, without any fuss. There are traditionally a lot of people who want to participate. There are even years when medics cannot cover all applicants,” said Alexander Remenyuk, head of the outpatient clinic of the Kyiv CPM.
So, thanks to 60 donors, medics received 31 litres of blood.
“Donor means ‘giving life’,” adds Lydia Kravets, a nurse at the Obukhov district hospital, who helped organise the blood donation at the company. – All blood groups are good and needed, so we invite everyone to join the good cause further!
