Young steel workers donate blood for Zaporizhzhia military hospital

Workers of Zaporizhstal and other Metinvest enterprises in Zaporizhzhia who are members of the Youth Organization got together to be blood donors for the patients of the Zaporizhzhia military hospital.

“I am trying to regularly donate blood. It can save somebody’s life, especially at a difficult time like this when the blood is so much needed. It’s my third time to be a blood donor since the start of the full-scale war. I prepare myself by staying on diet for two days before the procedure, where I don’t eat any salty, spicy, oily, or dairy products, because it’s very important,” says a packing worker of Cold Rolling Shop Stanislav Lapenko.

The young man has been a blood donor for several years now. Stanislav has donated blood three times since the full-scale invasion. The enterprise has a long history of a Donor’s Day; this is why there are many other blood donors like Stanislav working at the enterprise.

“Today, Zaporizhstal youth organization has initiated a blood donation campaign to donate blood for the military hospital. Employees of our enterprise are always willing to come and donate blood whatever the cause may be. Today, employees of Metinvest enterprises in Zaporizhzhia have volunteered to come to the Blood Centre to share their blood with those who need it. This is our contribution in support of Ukraine’s defenders and our victory,” says the leader of Zaporizhstal youth organization Anatoly Shirma.
