There’s a constant lack of donors of blood and its components in Ukraine. This year, however, the issue got much more topical, as the military action in Donbass is going on, and people injured in the conflict often need donors’ blood. Our soldiers risk their lives every single minute, and each donor increases the chances to save the injured person’s life!
We call upon all the non-indifferent people to study the “Recommendations and Contraindications” Brochure done by the AUASO “Alraid” and RAMU “Umma”, and take part in the event is they don’t have contraindications for becoming a blood donor.
Last year we found out that the medical commission also declines donors who drank sweet beverages with gas (soda, cola, etc.) during the two days prior the benefit and on the donor’s day as well. Current edition of the brochure doesn’t contain this information yet, so please mind that!
