Main aim of the charity

Voluntary blood donation for people who need it. It takes only 20 minutes of your time per donation.

How the employee got involved and why

In the 2010, my Grandmother was suffering from leukemia. During her medical treatments and due to the nature of her illness, she needed frequent blood transfusions. At that time, within our local community from the small village in the central part of Serbia where we used to live, my Mother was trying to find the applicable blood donor. This donor should spend some time in the big hospital in the capital Belgrade, in order to be specially medically treated in donating the blood for my grandmother. That was the motivation for me to say to my parents that I would like be a voluntary donor and help my grandmother. Since then, I become a voluntary blood donor and with big desire, I am regularly responding to different activates in donating blood. In the past, I donated blood twelve times for a patient who suffered from a disease and urgently needed erythrocytes or leukocytes. I also voluntarily donate blood regularly at the Blood Transfusion Institute of Serbia.

What work does the employee do for charity?

Since 2011, I am a voluntary blood donor, donating blood twice or even three times a year. This year, I have donated blood for the twentieth time.
