83 employees of “Zaporizhstal”, ‘ZLMZ” and the Zaporizhzhia site of “Metinvest-PromService” took part in the first Donor Day this year. Together, the donors managed to share 37 liters of blood.
Due to the fact that the blood donation campaign has long grown into the unwavering tradition of the Works, most employees are called honorary donors. The same donors include the repairperson of the cold rolling workshop No. 1 Valery Sazonov:
– Once the blood had to be donated for my neighbor, then for my wife, the acquaintances turned. Then I started giving it regularly. To all those in need, I am always ready to help. I have been donating blood at not only the Works, but I also go to a blood transfusion station. Of course, I am getting ready for this: a few days before excluding dairy, eggs fried and salty food. The blood donation itself is easy for me. Then I feel a surge, a surge of strength, – told us Valery.
The blood donated by the workers is sent to the bank of the Zaporizhzhia regional blood transfusion station, and from there it is redistributed to various medical institutions. For example, at the end of last year, the Works donated 100 doses of blood to the hematology department of the Regional Children’s Hospital.
